E28***34one of the most beautiful places in Mexico. I took the tour twice with Trip and was really happy about it. they have very good companies they worked with we had a nice trip which included breakfast and lunch and the guide was bilingual.
yangtingkunBehind the pyramid, there is a large ruin. It was supposed to be a palace, but the upper part has been destroyed, leaving only rows of columns standing neatly, so the ruins are called Qianzhu Square
耶路撒冷的牛牛The cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula can be said to be spread all over the area. There are privately developed or large groups, and the fares are different.
The road into the cenote is also very beautiful.
There are two lifeguards, and there are many warning signs, and if they are all in the open air, there is no need to worry about landslides. Swimming here is also very comfortable and safe.
M25***40The place is connected to the nearby La Iglesia, the base of the accommodation itself is stilted with stones, but the top is a more visible three-dimensional carving, which contains some of the gods' mask symbols, which is interesting.
pxy0705The Skulls Temple is not very large, and the damage is severe. Now there is only a two-story platform and some stone carvings. It used to be a temple, and there were many stone piers on the platform, which should be the place where the gods were placed. Everyone can pay attention when visiting the ancient city.
#holidayvacation Chichen Itza and its temple of kukulkan is the icon of Mayan culture. However, the attraction itself is too touristy nowadays, every five steps there will be someone asking to sell something and it is swarmed with tourists too.
Chichén Itzá is a complex of Mayan ruins on Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. A massive step pyramid, known as El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan, dominates the ancient city, which thrived from around 600 A.D. to the 1200s.
My third Wonder of the World: Chichén Itzá
My third wonder of the modern world: a Mayan engineering and architecture masterpiece in the wilderness of Yucatan (Mexico). El Castillo is certainly the symbol of Chichen Itza and was built to be a real calendar.
During the spring and autumn equinoxes, as the sun goes down and the sun rises, the corners of the pyramid cast a feathered serpent-shaped shadow, Kukulkan; clapping his hands the sound that breaks against the steps (inclined at 45 degrees) reproduces the bird of paradise's own verse and during the ceremonies the Mayan kings made blood flow along the corners of the pyramid to call the god of rain to earth.
The sensations that are perceived here are really intense, an energy difficult to explain in words, but I hope that these shots will get you there at least a little.
We visited this Mayan site in February and the jungle temperatures are really high. Bring lots of water with you and try to avoid the central hours of the day. Recommended the visit with a Mayan guide, you will fall in love with his words.
In the meantime, I hope that my next wonder of the world could be the Taj Mahal, and instead you, which one would you choose?

🇲🇽Mexico-Chichen Itzá one to be represents how after 2 millenniums they’re still standing strong and with so much history.
⛰Colorado Springs-Here whats not to love with breathtaking scenery, constantly outdoors and adventuring everywhere. Drove all way to Peaks Pike!
🗽New York City- Something I really love Because I’m a big history and city type of guy. That picture just makes me think about the time NY was burned down by Washington when retreating. Now to see how beautiful building take the sky again. Just wow.
Super cheap to play Mayan pyramid! In addition to being a Mayan ruin,
Chichen Itza is now a large Mexican handicraft market. Each of the roads leading to various scenic spots is lined up with handicraft stalls, from 1 for a refrigerator, about 30 for a T-shirt or a traditional Mexican dress, to hundreds of pesos. Large tapestries and giant wood carvings are exquisite, and the flowers feel that if you have plenty of time and enough baggage, you can really buy some favorite.
and our attractions are different from the compulsory production line. Many of the products here are all written by the owner, and they are seen alongside the sales and creation. Handcrafted unique crafts are still very valuable. Remember to kill the price!
There are no restaurants in Chichen Itza. Only the snack pavilions such as ice cream, drinks and potato chips are sold. Considering the number of trips, everyone needs to spend lunch time in the scenic spot. I suggest everyone. Prepare some dry food and enough drinking water to start.
After a whole day, I and my brother-in-law have spent about 1,000 pesos per person in Chichen Itza. In fact, the budget can be controlled at around RMB 200. Realizing the Mayan dream cheaply, this program is still very good!
Chichen Itza is the ancient Mayan city site, including the Pyramid of the Feathers, The largest stadium preserved in Mexico, The Temple of the Man with a Beard, the natural well of 23 meters deep, and the Thousand Columns Hall. "It is the site of ancient Mayan culture and Toltic culture."
The middle of Chichen Itza is a temple built for the feathers and snakes. The foundation of the pyramid is square, and the four sides rise up the stairs until the temple at the top. In the spring and autumn equinoxes, at sunrise and sunset, the corners of the building cast a serpentine shadow on the steps north of the pyramid and slide down the north as the sun moves.
The most shocking story I heard about Chichen Itza is that the ball game is not a sporting event for the Maya, but a religious activity. The two players can only use the elbows, knees and buttocks to hit the rubber ball into the stone circle on the wall of the stadium. It is said that the captain of the victory party will be the sacrifice party, the blood sacrifice god, and the sacrifice is the fresh heart dug out. The heart is dug out and placed in the tray in the hands of Chakmo (Figure 5).
Tickets: 254 pesos, you can swipe your card.
Opening time: 8:00-17:00
ADO bus from Cancun, about 3 hours, you can also drive.
We are familiar with the Maya Pyramid during the day. It is still parking in the parking lot and paying a parking fee of 30 pesos. Obviously, the car is much more than yesterday, and the parking space is not so good. Time has come to 10 am, although I have been urging myself to avoid the tour group as early as possible, but it is still late.
There is no suspense, the Kukulcan Pyramid stands there, but it looks more spectacular than the night! In the square that is still surrounded in the evening, you can walk freely during the day. Although there are a lot of tourists, you can still find a very quiet angle. All you have to do is try to bypass the back of the pyramid. But here is really very dry! This is a place where you have to go to the foreigner to have an umbrella.
This is a typical tourist attraction, full of small business hawkers, selling souvenirs. That color caught me all at once. The colored gimmicks are really addictive. I thought there should be a lot of places to sell souvenirs in the back. I was afraid of breaking them all the way, and I never met them again. Especially exquisite and beautiful Mexican straw hat refrigerator stickers, just see it, it is more delicate than other places! And it is not very expensive, remember to bargain.
Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, no one who has come to the Yucatan Peninsula will miss this place. I have seen a lot of travel tips, shooting Chichen Itza during the day. But the night here is also very beautiful, and there is a fantastic sound and light show, starting at 8 o'clock every night. Today's goal is this show!
Because the car rental has been delayed for too long, the time to arrive at Chichen Itza is very late. The parking lot is parked and the parking space is relatively easy to find at night. Rush to the ticket office and ask if the night show has begun? The waiter replied "it is the time." My good fortune is not too late, a ticket 240 pesos. Who knows that just after buying the ticket, the window will be closed. In other words, I was the last guest today! Holding the ticket is arranged to the back of a group of people, only to know that it is the guide, an iphone SE explainer.
It takes only 5 minutes from the entrance to the Kukulcan Pyramid in Chichen Itza. This place is smaller than expected. Before the show started, I circled around the Chichen Itza site and it was too comfortable. The night is very cool, the stars are shining, the lights on the ground are bright, and there are many stars.
Sound and light show started, full Spanish, 45 minutes. I didn't use the interpreter. I was shooting video all the time. There are not many photos. The following picture is a microcosm.
Looking around for information before discovering Mexico, I found that there are hundreds of Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula, but the most famous Chichen Itza (United Nations World Cultural Heritage, World New Seven Wonders) is a 3-hour drive from Cancun. Therefore, the asking price for a day trip is around RMB 500.
From ADO Station in the Cancun city of Mexico (large transportation hub of ADO Motors), there is a bus that stops only one stop, one bus a day, 08 in the morning.
