How to Explore Chichén Itzá In The Mayan Riviera

Chichen Itza

was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. The archaeological site is located in Tinúm Municipality, Yucatán State, Mexico. Chichen Itza was a major focal point in the Northern Maya Lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Postclassic period.

The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.

There are several areas to stay in and plenty of activities to do during a trip to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Whether they are in Cancun or Riviera Maya, visitors have the option to snorkel with vibrant-colored fish, zip line through forests, explore cenotes, shop, dine and so much more.
