Today was another spectacular day! We took the 2.5 hour trip to this magnificent place called “Chichen Itza”, As you can see – the Mayan ruins/ temples here are incredible! The sheer size of them was unreal!!! And to think these were built so long ago!
We saw many great things today and it was so hard just to choose ONE photo! But as the El Castillo pyramid in Chichen Itza is considered as one of the new 7 wonders of the world, I figured today’s photo had to be of that.
On our way back from Chichen Itza we stopped at a city called Valladolid where we had lunch and visited a Cenote ( a natural pit or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath). The one we visited was more than 80m deep!
This city was so captivating with all its big bright buildings and a magnificent church! I loved this place and wish we could have spent more time there.
We only got back to our resort after 8pm, so we had a shower and then headed out for another delicious meal.
