So you are in Chichen Itza, of course you are going to look at the ball court. It is the largest one I have seen, and so far the vendors have not set up in it.

Interesting within the archaeological site but now t memorable as is El Castillio. Worth the stop on guided tour though the various gods could get confusing.

By far my favorite structure at xichen, great architecture here, big noses on sides and this temple is for the water gods, of the Lamanite people! this city is very possibly the city of Morianton!

This place was so vast and beautiful. The carvings on the wall were impressive and the ball court still had the ring.

The temple of the eagles and jaguars is fantastic. You can see sculptures of jaguars grabbing human skulls in their claws... chilly. Supposedly this temple was dedicated to the military when they returned from campaigns to terrorize neighboring states.

Nice ruins!! They have a lot of Mayan culture ... I recommend arriving at 8am on the dot and you can avoid the huge crowds for a little bit and really enjoy them!
