CHICHEN ITZA


Chichen Itza was one of the largest and possibly the most famous Mayan cities. It contains many fine stone buildings in various states of preservation, including the largest ball court in the Americans, a large Cenote (sacred well), largest observatory and iconic Chac-Mool alter overlooking a large pyrimid. Unlike other Mayan sites open to the tourists, none of the structures at Chichen Itza can be climbed or entered.
