The explanations about how the building relates to the Mayan calendar are very interesting, as are the "snake" shadows at sunset

A must see visit. Incredible structures to see and experience in person. Hard to describe how cool it is. Have to see it with your own eyes.

Go early if you can to get the best pictures of this amazing Pyramid. Unfortunately climbing is not allowed on any of the Chichen Itza's ruins

Guides on a tour will be able to provide an enormous amount of information about the history of the building and the Mayans who build it. It is stunning to view, and all the more impressive once you know details about how it was constructed.

Unbelievable! A definite must see. Get there early to avoid queues and heat. Wear trainers or similar not flip flops as terrain is bumpy.

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.
