Chichen Itza – the highlights and lowlights

26th November 2017

Euhm only one of the mysterious ruins of the Mayans and one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World. Turns out Chichen Itza is more than just the The Temple of Kukulcan, you know … the landmark pyramid that steals all the the attention.
Of course the Kukulcan temple was the highlight, but I loved that learning about the other temples and their purposes – more on that later. I was also happy to learn that although it was busy it wasn’t as noticeable as the area is spaced out, at least until you got the the smaller areas.

I want to say that you aren’t allowed to climb to the top and go in the inside of the temple anymore, but given the amount of people that visit the site I do understand it that would mean it would be all just dust pretty soon.
Hate is a big word, but the descriptions were so short they would have been more informative in emojis, but I guess they gotta get some dollars for the tour guides.
Sheltering from the rain is never the best way to pick a restaurant, but that’s nature for you! We had nachos and quesadillas at a restaurant on site, it was your typical attraction overpriced restaurant that serves edible food. But the frozen fruit popsicles sold on site did it for me, I would definitely sacrifice someone to get more!
Yes, maybe for one of the Equinox celebrations.
Hell yes! If you are in the Yucatán Peninsula hit up this archaeological site and see what else the Mayans have gifted us besides tacos.

Have you been to the Chichen Itza or is it on your must go list?
