CHICHÉN ITZÁ

Built to a scale that seems to be from another world, Chichén, one of the new seven wonders of the world, has some of the largest buildings of the ancient Mayan cities. It had a port near Río Lagartos and grew rich from trading. With a large population, it became the most powerful city in the whole of the Yucatán in the last centuries of the Classic Mayan era (AD 750–900), defeating Cobá, Izamal, and others in war. A visit to this site is not to be missed.
