"Having spent 2 years travelling and tour-leading in Mexico and Central America I can safely say that Chichen Itza is one of my absolute favourite pre-Columbian sites. Even after visiting it over 8 times, I am still struck not just by the sheer size of the ancient city, but by its architectural diversity (combining Maya with Aztec themes), the grandiose buildings and the detailed sculpture. The journey there is through rather unprepossessing scrub, little preparing you for the view of the Temple of Kukulcan. This is absolutely stunning – a huge stepped pyramid built in time-honoured fashion over the top of younger smaller temples."
