Chichenitza - Mouth of the well of the Itzas

got there fairly early. it was a tad smaller than I expected which was
nice. the scale was was just right. took a bunch of polaroids. there
were iguanas walking all around. interesting to note is that the the
Mayans claimed to have NOT built the pyramids and structures but said
they were built by the gods. saw a lot before the throngs of crowds
showed up tourism is alive and well it seems. hotel we stayed in was
behind the ruins and is called mayaland hotel. old school nice.
surrounded by huge old growth trees, great coffee, food and staff. and
you can walk straight into the ruins from there. great swimming at the
cenote right down the road.
