The well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan city.
Two hours west of Cancún stands one of the most popular archeological sites in Mexico. During its heyday between 600 and 1000 AD, Chichen Itza was an economic hub for the pre-Columbia Mayan people. Its ruins include multiple temples such as the breathtaking stone pyramid El Castillo, built for Kukulkan, a feathered serpeant god. For a more relaxing Chichen Itza experience, buy a guidebook at the gift shop and learn about the ruins on your own time. Oh, and get there early or prepare to battle some serious crowds.
