"Take care with the height" Top 5 Page for this destination Ruinas Chichén-Itzá Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Maria_75

  The steps are quite steep
by Maria_75

Well, it's not really a danger. But if you have problems with height you should think twice before going up. I really don't like heights but had climbed the Sunpyramid in Teotihuacan and thought this one would be easier. But it wasn't...

It's not so bad to go up, but once you're up there it's a bit worse. It's very steep and the platform on top is not so wide. If you are seriously scared of heights you should at least have someone with you so they can help you get down again. It's a fantastic view from the top, but I didn't see so much up there. I was just wondering how the %&#(! to get down again, and thought my skeletons would be part of the pyramid in the future. But in the end I managed to get back down again...
