One of the largest and most fascinating sites in Mexico, mighty Chichen Itza, is also one of the more impressive pyramids in the world. Its towering El Castillo has four sides with 365 steps (depicting the solar year), 52 panels (for each year in the Mayan century), 18 terraces (for the eighteen months in the religious year) and a temple. The gigantic ball court at Chichen Itza is the largest ever discovered and is lined with fascinating carvings. There's also a sacred well, an observatory, the imposing Temple of Warriors, the Nunnery, and dozens of other structures. Arrive early to beat the crowds.
