Long Description:
Ancienct Mayan city, from about 900-1500's. Is now a popular site for tourists to the Mayan Riviera. We went with a guide, and learned a lot more than we would just walking around by ourselves. Some of the temples have openings in the walls where the sun shines through at the equinoxes or solstices.
