This place is very easily accessible and is just a minutes walk from the El Castillo temple. It is well worth viewing as it is so close!

There were many interesting carvings here and it is certainly worth a stop while at the site. It is also one on the better preserved structures at Chichen Itza.

Ok, if you do not have a guide here, please do yourself a favor and read up on it before going.
The rules for the game here is very different (like the winning captain will be sacrificed).
Other non so obvious things here is that the King who sat in one end could hear everything that was said in the other end (but not the other way around). We tested it out with our guide and it was amazing.
Another thing is at the right spot in the middle you can clap your hands and you can hear 7 echos (from each end).
Last thing is a very discussed silhouette of a man with a long beard behind the king. There are no final decision on who this would be, but guesses go from Jesus, to Muslims to Vikings..

Another beautiful example of Mayan ruins left for us to enjoy and wonder. Carvings still intact and such grandeur.

This area is not crowded. It is near the observatory which is 5 stars and the church which is 5 stars so worth the look when you get there. But these stories and structure are not as impressive as the others.

Constructed between 600-900AD this place gets its name from the remnants of red paint that once decorated its inner walls.
It’s quite a magical, quiet part of Chichen Itza and I spent some time just soaking up the atmosphere here.
A good guide can explain so much more about this place than a regular guide book.
Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly.

This was so cool to see. The place where they had sacred games where the losing captain was sacrificed to the gods. Reminded me of basketball with the hoops and the rubber ball.

Listen to the tour-guide and the game offer interesting perspective.
The rules for the game here is very different (like the winner will be sacrificed).
Try this - At the right spot in the middle you can clap your hands and you can hear 7 echos (from each end). There are lots of interesting places around here when you clap get echos ...

The Red house is located from the entrance to the far right of the complex. It's out the main attractions of Chichen where most visitors come. Just follow the path with many vendors and it will appear after the observatory.
The house is in a very well preserved condition deriving it's name from the red pepper color in which it was painted. Interesting is the jaguar statue in it.

The red house is not far from the main temple in chicken Itza and is worth seeing although you can't go in or climb it. The amazing thing about this is how late they are built between 600 and 900 ad. I had misconceptions that they were much older civilisations like the Egyptians.
The historical significance of all the buildings makes it part of the Mayan and Aztec culture. A guided tour is essential so you don't miss the significance.
It is named red house because of remnants of paint left behind from over a thousand years. Well worth visiting as part of a tour of the complex.
