This is a package deal, if you go to see the pyramids, observatory, temple of warriors etc is there for a look. For me, this site is about a 10 minute shot. I am not degrading it but just not that much to see. Remember, it is part of the overall deal. If you are into history, you must see... More

The Temple of the Warriors was excavated in 1928 and contains a number of carvings of birds, animals and warriors. To the west and south, there are two hundred round and square columns that have a Toltec warrior carved on each side of the square portion. They were painted at one time and some paint is still visible. The columns... More

This structure is one of the buildings that remained in Chichen itza. It has numerous columns and a sacrificial table on top, which was used for human sacrifice by the Mayans. Captured enemies would be taken up the stairs and their raging heart would be ripped out and held up for show while still beating. Another amazing structure in this... More

Full day of events in the area. The trip requires s good guide for the history. Also visit local Mayan and sacrid cinote. Do not buy trinkets in Chichen Itza they are noted for exchanging fake bills. Everything else is well worth doing

You walk around Chichen Itza and you can just imagine what life must have been like for the Mayan people then. It is truly an amazing site.

Very interesting site. Now that we know the Mayans did do sacrifices, it is unbelievable. You can still see where the person was laid before the were sacrificed. Hope they had some kind of herbs first.

Very impressive structure with a grim reminder of the Mayas dark side prominently exposed at the top of the stairacse (sacrifice altar). Definitely makes an impression. Plus, here the great columnade starts (and continues seemingly forever).

Behind el castillo there is this group of buildings with the temple of warriors, chac-mol temple and bano de vapor. The many columns gave the name to the place and it is simply magical to look at.
