Chichén Itzá – Tour
Our Chichén Itzá Tour from the Tulum in Riviera Maya was well worth the 6 hour travel time. A guided tour can easily be arranged at most major resorts along the Riviera Maya. The pyramid and ruins at Chichén Itzá make Tulum look amateur. In the past you could walk up the largest pyramid called the Temple of Kukulcan, but walking on it is no longer allowed. The grounds are immense, but the major ruins are close together. Highlights include the Temple of the Jaguar, the Temple of the Warriors, the Caracol Observatory and the Plaza of a Thousand Columns. Ropes are used to prevent people from wandering into even more ruins still covered by the forest. Chichén Itzá is truly deserving of status as one of the man-made wonders of the world.
Chichén Itzá – Local Vendors
Vendors, Chichén Itzá
The local vendors and souvenir sellers are allowed on the site. They are allowed to sell among the ruins. Some of the selling techniques are quite enjoyable:
“Come and see my junk”
“So cheap it’s almost free”
“Let me be the last one to rip you off today.”
