Located in Mexico’s Yucatan state, the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico, as well as being handy day-tour distance from the beaches and cocktails of popular Mayan Riviera cities like Cancun and Playa del Carmen, making it a compelling add-on to a sun-and-sea getaway.
Believed to be one of the civilisation’s great cities, it is dominated by impressive step pyramid temples such as El Castillo (the Temple of Kukulkan), the Temple of the Warriors and The Osario, as well as palaces, rows of columns and even ball courts.
