In its heyday as a commercial, religious and military centre, which lasted until about the 13th Century, Chichen Itza supported over 35,000 people. The ruins were built with such knowledge of cosmology and mathematics that astound scholars from around the world. Deadly games were held in the magnificent Ball Court to choose sacrificial victims for the altar-throne that was in the form of a red jaguar encrusted with jade, and their remains displayed in the gruesome Temple of Skulls. This ball court is the largest to be found in Mesoamerica. The most awe-inspiring structure at the site is the pyramid known as The Castle, El Castillo, built around AD 800. Other highlights include The Observatory, El Caracol, one of the most fascinating and important of all the Chichen Itza buildings. After the visit, we continue to Cenote Ik-Kil for a refreshing swim and buffet lunch. Return to hotel. (B,L,D) NOV 16 : FREE DAY (B,L,D) Full day at leisure to enjoy the beach and hotel activities.
