The archaeological park at Chichen Itza is not only amazing, but vast. Because there is so much acreage and so much to see, it can be easy to miss the smaller, but oh so important details that can add much to one's visit there.

Located in Chichen Itza, you can play several audio games inside the complex structure and learn more about the fascinating Mayas.

What an incredible historical artifact! Flavio Tours shared all the wonderful stories that surrounded these grounds. It was great to see all the Mayan statues.

mayan football. The goalpost is a small circle in stone, they had a football made of latex juice. It was a hot day so take plenty of water. legend has it that the one to score the goal through that small hole is the only one good enough for The Gods. It was amazing.

As part of the main site, with the pyramid etc this is an amazing site. It is hard to imagine just what the game must have been like when played there but great to imagine it all.
