There are some tourist sites where you visit once, see it, and it’s done; you never need to go back. Chichen Itza is most certainly NOT one of those places. Since I moved to the Riviera Maya, and even before, I’ve visited numerous times.
Every time I’m left with the feeling that I should have stayed longer, looked at engravings more closely, or just admired the grandeur of the main temple. And every time I go back, I feel like I’m discovering it for the first time again – it’s a truly awe-inspiring place.
A few days ago we went back again. Other than these brief opening comments, I just want to share some of the pictures I took. Today I’ll share some of the main temple or “Castillo,” and tomorrow I’ll share some pictures of various other buildings and features.
To start off, here are a couple of shots from the car:
