Cancun Trip Report: Day 6, Chichen Itza, Part 1

Day 6

Thursday we walked to the ruins at 8am, which is when it opened. We had to check out of the hotel at noon. We finished with the ruins (and barely saw nearly everything) at 11:30. So if you like this sort of thing, leave enough time! We climbed the Pyramid first because it was cool and the stairs were in shadow. Wow is it steep when you look down from the top. And what a view! It was truly impressive. I took tons of pics, so I won’t
describe the site here – but it is so worth seeing. And it is huge!
