The Mayans who built this searched for limestone which was best for acoustics. If you stand at the far end of the ball court and speak in a regular voice the person standing on the other end (which is about the length of a football field) can hear you. You can only prove this to yourself after the crowds have left and you have the place almost to yourself.
