During my last trip to Mexico I took a day to travel to Chichen Itza which are some of the most amazing and mystifying Mayan Ruins left standing. I highly recommend you take the day to do this but it’s important to hire a knowledgeable guide or you will miss out on a lot of the history and importance of the structures.
Upon are arrival in Chichen Itza we were let to an extremely gorgeous buffet of both Mayan and Mexican dishes – yum! There was even a Mayan woman making homemade tortillas!
There is also a small boutique resort right on the property that you can stay at – this gives you the opportunity to tour the ruins without the crowds and at your own pace.
