We only had to go about 1 1/2 miles from our campground to the Chichen Itza Ruins. We had a very good guide that spoke excellent english. We spent about 4 hours touring the ruins. We learned a lot about the Mayans. There were a peaceful people and they did not do human sacrifice like the Axtecs or the Toltecs. This evening we are going back to the ruins to see the light show. I have the internet right accros the street from us so I am going to post this and the pictures this afternoon and will update the evening stuff later (being at night the pictures probably won't be good).
