Chichen Itza (in the mouth of the Itza spring)

Chichen Itza is located about 400 km west of Cancun and is probably the most famous Mayan ruin city in the Yucatan. Chichen Itza, founded around 400 A.D, had its heyday from 800 to 1200 AD and was the center of political, religious and military power in the Yucatan. In its architecture is a gradual change of the architectural style, starting with the one in the Puuc style in Uxmal ruins and other cities in Yucatan and reached its peak with the Maya - Toltec style, recognizable by their similarity to the style in Tula, the ancient capital of the Toltecs, Oaxaca and other Toltec ruins cities along the Gulf Coast. Chichen Itza was a very large Mayan city with many inhabitants, who lived scattered around the religious zone that we now know as the ruins. Despite the large population there was plenty of drinking water by many leading water caves and cenotes in the region. On a tour of the city you will learn about the history of the Maya and Chichen Itza.
