Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico

One of the new seven wonders of the world since 2007

Not so far from the beautiful Cancun resorts, one can find some of the most amazing historical structures in the world. Mayan pyramids, which belong to 900-1300 AD, can amaze anyone. Chichen Itza has many buildings and it takes time to visit all its structures. Not far from the historical part, there is a very beautiful cenote.
