This pre-Hispanic city was declared a world heritage site in 1988 and is now one of the '7 new wonders of the world' and is by far the most important archaeological site of the area and is known as the Capital  of  the Mayan Empire, founded in 445 A.D.  A full day sightseeing tour visiting the Pyramid of Kukulcan, the  Ball Court, the Temple of Warriors, the Observatory and the Sacred Well.  The more energetic can enjoy the opportunity to climb the pyramid. If you're more sedate, try bargaining with the locals for some of the handicraft items on sale- it's a great way to experience the culture!
