You have to go there, even if it's a 2 1/2 hour ride! Make sure to get someone to tour you, though! It's really jot in the summer and there are too many vendors, but you have to see it!

What a site to see. Wait till you lay your eyes on this piece of Mayan history. The ancient architecture and acoustics are unbelievable. Its to bad you can't climb it anymore but you do have to protect it. Go see it.

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.
