the mother ruin site
Well we woke up early in Vallodolid to get to Chichen Itza early. The weather was just typical rainforest... pouring rain. Blazing sun. Back again.
C.I. was definitely the grandest of the ruin sites. Things were roped off so we couldn't ascend the escalones (which is why we were attracted to Coba.)
There was the area of a "thousand pillars" however, I couldn't count to a thousand, so I'm not sure how many there ACTUALLY were.
We discovered the ancient beginnings of tic tac toe!
And decided that Coby is probably a lot taller than the average Mayan...
There were also some neat caves but we didn't explore too far just in case giant snakes lived in them.
After we felt we saw all the untouchable ruins we could handle, we picked up and headed for Coba.
