The location is sublime, it's a small site but I didn't see anything similar while I've seen many Maya ruins during the last 20 years. This is one of my favourites.

Compared to other archaeological cities I've visited in central Mexico and Oaxaca where you dash across sun-baked dry expanses, Chinkultic was lush and forested... felt like a walk in the countryside, with pyramids. Trees, birdsong, lawns, a relaxing pace. As with all ancient cities we'd...More
