Chichén Itzá was an ancient Mayan city and now stands as an archaeological site – a complex of impressive ruins, including some of the iconic temples that we know and love in Mexico. As one of the largest Mayan cities and civilisations in the country, there is a spectacular range of architectural design to discover, as well as plenty to see. You can even hire an expert guide if you’re looking to really immerse yourself in the history of this site.
Many visitors come to Chichén Itzá to explore El Castillo, a large temple featuring steps all the way to the top; resembling a towering pyramid rising up into the sunny skies. Another fascinating site is the Great Ballcourt, where sportsmen once played and risked their lives in a game of honour.
Nature lovers will enjoy a trip here to admire the Sacred Cenote, which offers remarkable scenery of the luscious greenery and deep, glistening waters while also claiming a rich, historic background.
