  • Some places simply have a special energy and the Chich茅n Itz谩 is definitely one of them 馃槏
鉁 鉁 鉁 鉁 鉁
We were so lucky to enjoy this magic almost alone for a while before the crowds arrived a little later. 馃檲 If I can give you one advice for a trip there: Arrive early to be one of the first ones entering the arreal 鈴

P.S. I used photoshop to add a little extra magic in this pic by editing the sky 馃檪馃敭

  • A trip to Guatemala 馃嚞馃嚬 isn鈥檛 complete without a visit to the majestic Maya site called Tikal, meaning "at the waterhole". It is the ruin of an ancient city, which was found in a rainforest 馃崈馃 in Guatemala and is one of the largest archaeological sites in the world 馃寧 According to archaeologists, Tikal was  one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya. The site is seriously huge and it takes a good 4 hours to explore, we did a lot of walking 馃毝鈥嶁檧锔廰nd climbing stairs! The architecture of Tikal is built from limestone and includes the remains of temples that tower over 70 meters high, large royal palaces and a number of smaller pyramids, residences, administrative buildings, platforms and inscribed stone monuments. In 1979, Tikal was declared a UNESCO world heritage site @unesco and rightly so. Pretty darn spectacular 馃槏!! #tikal #unesco #nationalpark #tikalruins #ancientruins #mayan #rainforest #peten #guatemala #pkslist #800daysoftravel

We aim to see all the Wonders of the World before we鈥檙e 30! 馃榿馃檲
#new7wonders .

We tried reaching Chichen Itza around 8 am which meant starting our 2 hour long drive from Cancun at 6, but as you can see in the picture, some places are always crowded. I guess the crowd beat us by just a few minutes. 馃槀
.
Anyway, with Chichen Itza began the journey of our this very travel goal.
.
Since then, we鈥檝e ticked off the Taj Mahal as well. 馃懟馃挏馃А

While Chichen Itza being the top attraction for us in Cancun, it surely had a lot of other fun activities to do as well.

Bir savascinin ruhu yalnizca mucadele etmeye elverislidir; ve her mucadelesi, bir savascinin yeryuzundeki son savasidir. Bu yuzden, sonucu onun icin cok az onem tasir. Yeryuzundeki son savasinda, savasci, ruhunu ozgur ve berrakcasina akmaya birakir.

  • First time in Belize and enjoying it! It鈥檚 such a pristine and beautiful place. Standing atop the Temple of the Sun god at a Maya ruins site in Altun Ha. Altun Ha means Water of the Rock. Altun Ha was a major ceremonial center during the Classic Period (250-900A.D) and functioned as a vital trading center linking the Caribbean shores with other Maya centers. Altun Ha is located 31 miles north of Belize City.

It was here that the largest carved jadeobject in the whole maya area, a Jade Head, was found; it has a value of almost $10M US. This Jade Head represents the Sun god, Kinich Ahau, and can be seen in the corner of every Belizean banknote.

  • Excursion - Chich茅n Itz谩

I booked this tour through Tui and the tour guide we had was a lady named Siw who was excellent and was able to discus everything on the tour in great detail, Siws English was also very clear. 
Trip advisor rating - 4.5 猸愶笍 My rating - 4猸愶笍 The trip is made up of 3 different stopping points, Chich茅n Itz谩 to see the ruins, then you stop at for lunch and to swim at an underground cenote and finally you travel to a Maya village to experience their culture and how they live. 
Our day began at 5:10am when we were picked up at the Rui Caribe to travel to  Chich茅n Itz谩, this took around 2 hours, the first hour we slept and the second half Siw explained a bit about what we were doing and gave us some basic knowledge about the ruins and Chich茅n Itz谩. The bus had air conditioning and Wi-Fi so it was a comfortable environment to travel in. TUI also supplied us with all inclusive food and drink for the day so we were given breakfast muffins and apple juice/water on the bus in the morning. 
When we arrived Siw took us round and told us about each building at the ruins. ~ FUN FACTS ABOUT CHICH脡N ITZ脕~ 鈥 it is home to the Kukulkan Pyramid, Temple of the Warriors and Temple of the Jaguars.
鈥 it is one of the seven wonders of the world.
鈥 it means 鈥榯he mouth at the well of itza鈥
鈥 the current temple that is visible is actually built directly on top of a temple underneath. 鈥 during spring, March 20th and autumn, September 22nd, sun rays shine onto the Kukulkan pyramid giving off the appearance of a snake slivering down the staircase. 
After being guided round the site everyone is given an hour to go and see everything on their own and get pictures. 
After this you travel to the area where the underground cenote is where you stop off for some traditional Mexican food which is cooked by some local Mexicans and here you are able to buy a beer or soft drink. 
After lunch everyone gets changed and heads down to an underground cenote. To finish the day we visited the maya village.

  • TULUM - BEAUTIFUL BUT ANNOYING
鉅
My first destination at the Riviera Maya has been the archeological zone of Tulum. Those are maya temples located right at the sea side. The whole site is beautiful and stunning when you think about how old these buildings are, as the construction started in about 500A.C.馃寘
鉅
But WHY is it ANNOYING?!
Well, as you can see on the pictures there are little fences in front of the temples which makes you stay far away from the most of them. With other words .. you can not come close and discover the beauty for real, neither take some good pictures. I am really wondering why the have this fences .. In Teotihuac谩n they don't have, in various inka sites in Peru they don't have (for example Machu Picchu), so why does Tulum have?!馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔
鉅
The entrance fee is 75MXN, so not really expensive. But in my eyes it's not completely worth it. At Riviera Maya you can find other beautiful places which don't have such restrictions and where you can easily discover the zone without being limited.馃挼
鉅
FOR EXAMPLE:
1锔忊儯 The pyramids of Coba
2锔忊儯 Various Cenotes (Garden of Eden, Cenote Azul etc.)
3锔忊儯 Isla Mujeres
鉅
So finally i can't really recommend the Maya Temples of Tulum, but check it out by your own when you are there and tell me how you like it!馃槈 Credits to @alansell 鉁
