We went on a tour with the company Excaret and Garry was our tour guide and he had such wonderful information to share with us! The stories we were told and the construction of each building was impressive. It was very warm out in the sunshine but it was definitely worth every second! I cant wait to do this tour... More

Very unique type of architectural design by the previous natives here. They look much more imposing, with the design and perfection of the construction.

Can't climb it, but it must be preserved to I understand! It's stunning! Amazing! A once in a lifetime experience! Clap when you get to the front of the pyramid!

This is a massive pyramid to the sun God. If you clap your hands really hard the eco from the pyramid sounds like a bird chirping.

Really impressive, the construction and all the design and architecture is really remarkable. The echo in the top is most amazing thing.

This is one of those sights which X unfortunately has lost its wow factor due to being repeatedly seen on television multiple times. It was still impressive to emerge from the tree line and see the pyramid on this plain in front of you but once that passes it's a case of get the photographs and leave. Many stalls nearby... More

Named for the plumed serpent diety in Mayan lore, Kukulcan is a wonder to behold. How on earth did they build this structure with no power tools or heavy earth-moving equipment? And align it so that a snake shadow appears at the solstice? This is proof that the Mayan people were geniuses of Mathematics, Engineering, the Solar System, and more.... More

No need to present this gem any more! Try to arrive early to get the site for (almost!) yourself. And come back at night for the light show 'la noche de Kukulkan'

The Kukulkan Pyramid (or the Temple of Kukulkan to be precise), also known as El Castillo is the main structure of the Chichen Itza complex and is named so after the Mayan snake-god Kukulkan whose stone heads adorn the bases of the pyramid stairs.
