We are taking a guided tour of Chichén Itza! This is a UNESO site, wonder of the world, and one of the largest ancient Mayan cities located in the Yucatan, about two hours from Cancun. We explore the history, including the archaeological finds, astronomical significance, Mesoamérican ball court, sacred cenote, and temples.

Our guide (who is of Mayan heritage) gives us a tour and tells us the stories of Mayan myth, legend, and sacrifice. We see the temple of the feathered serpent and learn the tales of sacrifice to the gods. We also visit the sacred centote which was the entrance to the underworld and used in sacrifice.

The tallest pyramid (called Kukulkan or Castillo from the Spanish) was built for astronomical purposes and during the vernal equinox (March 20) and the autumnal equinox (September 21) at about 3pm the sunlight casts a shadow creating a serpent figure that creeps downwards until it joins the huge serpent's head carved in stone at the bottom of the stairway.

The Mayan kingdom lies on the Yucatan, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, and other regions. Their heritage and ruins are fascinating, mysterious, and mesmerizing.
