Enormous and historical

Pictures does not do justice to the enormity of this place. It must be seen to be appreciated. You will just have to deal with the hot sun if visiting in summer.

This place is awe-inspiring, only spoilt by too many tourists and people trying to barter. It is quite a climb to the top and is not very safe, as you only have a chain to hold on to, but the history is fascinating.

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.

This arena aspect of Chichen Itza is just amazing to see. You could just picture yourself back in time - a colloseum full of people. The winners of course were sacrificed and died! What a tragedy! This kind of culture was somewhat brutal. The area is quite wide and "opened-spaced"!
