The whole place is fun and exciting to visit. There is a lot to see and you can really get a sense of the history that the Yucatan contains. Really amazing.

Great place to visit and learn about the Mayas. We had a great day. I was there in June. Bring water with you. It's a lot of walking but worth it.

Looking east of beautiful El Castillo is The Temple of the Warriors. This is a large and impressive site. We were told this was a popular place for the Mayans to gather and trade with others.
