Chichen Itza , meaning "at the mouth of the well of the Itza", was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya civilization. Today it is the second most visited site of Mexico.
I was fortunate to visit it in February of 2011.

      Thank you Bruce for visiting my Chichen Itza page! Glad to know you've also been there though long ago. In the beginning of February it wasn't too hot there even for me - who lives in cold Russia.

      Thank you, Dee! Chichen-Itza is the second most visited site in Mexico after Mexico-City because it's close to Cancun - the well-known resort. Glad you liked my story about it!

    Too bad you can't climb El Castillo anymore, but it is a very interesting place anyway! Your photos and tips bring back many nice memories from my own visit long ago.
