What Is Chichen Itza?

The stunning Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza are located deep in the Yucatan jungle and are a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. In 2001, Chichen Itza was also named one of the "New 7 Wonders of the World." It was the most important capital city of the Mayans during the Classic Period and is also the largest archaeological site in the Yucatan Peninsula. Many of the city's ancient ruins still stand to this day—including the famed El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan, a massive step pyramid that dominates the city's center. Chichen Itza is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico and a trip to Chichen Itza should not be missed when visiting the Yucatan!
