The guide said this pyramid was built over a smaller and more ancient pyramid. The construction is amazing and is in really good shape. There are places around the pyramid where if clap your hands you can hear an sharp sound as an echo!

BRING WATER! They have it on the grounds but it is hot. Get there as early as possible, when it opens preferably. Get a guide its worth the money - from 45 -60 dollars. Walking shoes better than sandals.

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to climb this anymore because of tourism damage to this great monument. But it is a testament to the knowledge and engineering prowess of the ancients
