  • Pyramids at Chichen Itza

    El Castillo Pyramid: Chichen Itza

    We booked a trip to Chichen Itza with the hotel.

    Our tour included transportation in an a/c bus, a buffet-style lunch, a tour of the cenotes or "sink-holes", and the tour of Chichen Itza.

    You will be in the sun for several hours and it gets really hot, so make sure to put on plenty of sunscreen and wear light colored clothing.

  • Chitchen Itza Mayan Ruins

    by shwest Written Aug 26, 2002

    Amazing ruins right in the heart of the forest. The guides are very helpful in bringing the past back to life. It gets very hot here, there's no breeze and the trees seem to capture the heat...you also have to do a lot of walking so remember to wear comfortable shoes & take a bottle of water

    Chichen Itza is definitely a MUST SEE!
    This huge complex of magnificent Mayan ruins is one of the biggest in Mexico. It dates back to 600 AD and the Mayan civilization. It features in the center the majestic pyramid of Kulkulkan, and its accompanying buildings.

    This amazing complex used to be a major Mayan city. The temples there are amazing, and the famous pyramid is perhaps the most impressing building I have ever seen in Mexico.

    At the top of the pyramid, you're rewarded with a pretty impressive view of the grounds and the forest beyond.

    Even if you love the beach and just want to rest, please don't be lazy and make a day trip to Chichén-Itza. You'll thank me later.
    Well-preserved (and reconstructed) Mayan ruins in a huge area.
