Chichen Itza

The ancient city of Chichen Itza is a spellbinding look back into the past, and a peek into the lives of the Mayan civilisation with world-famous ruins. 

El Castillo – or the Temple of Kukulkan – dominates the site, an impressive step pyramid with 365 steps, one for every day of the year. Incredibly, the Mayans’ advanced astronomy calculations mean that each equinox a magical serpent-shaped shadow falls on El Castillo. An incredible sight to see, but expect crowds. The mystical site was recently named as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. 

The weather is humid all year round, so spend your afternoons in the water or relaxing on the sugar-sand beaches to take a break from the heat.
