Only minutes away from our hotel we visited Chichén Itzá. We arrived at 8.00 am, opening hour. Which was a great move….. we had this marvellous site just for us. Tour busses (mainly from Cancún), arrived a couple of hours later.

 

The Pre-Hispanic city of Chichén Itzá….. well, you can read so much about the history…. (books, internet).

An UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988. One of the New Seven Wonders of the World….. and it was my number seven to visit!!

 

I’ve visited the Colosseum in Rom (Italy) in 1987 and 1995, Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in 2004 and 2009, Taj Mahal in Agra (India) in 2006, Great Wall of China (China) in 2007, Petra (Jordan) in 2008, Machu Picchu in Cúzco (Peru) in 2009 and finally Chichén Itzá, Yucatán (Mexico) in 2010!!!

Gefeliciteerd! Je bent er al; op naar het volgende lijstje (natuurwonders?)! Ik mis er nog twee: Petra in Jordanië en de Verlosser in Rio. Maar dat komt gegarandeerd wel goed :-)
