Photographer's Note

I was fortunate enough to get close to this Mayan ruin at Chichen Itza. There are many tour companies and tourists that come to Chichen Itza (4 1/2 hours by bus from Cancun), and it is very hot at around 40 C+. Not far from here is an ancient cenote where adults, children, and old people were sacrificed to the gods. When they dredged the well there were many jewels and gold items to be found, not to mention a lot of bones. Some of the finds have been given back to the Mexico people. It is well worth coming to Chichen Itza to see these ancient ruins. In one of the pyraminds you can go inside into a secret pyramid hidden below and crawl through the maze of walls underneath. The price from Cancun bus station is about $20 Canadian one way, as apposed to a $160.00 US tour. The bus station is in the center of the old city (Ciudad Cancun) and is very easy to get to. Just hop on a bus to the old town and ask the driver for the Lotobus Statione.
