Chichén Itzá

A very popular day trip from Cozumel is an excursion to Chichén Itzá, one of Mexico's most important Maya sites. Chichén Itzá was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, with UNESCO calling the sacred city "one of the greatest centers of the Yucatán Peninsula." It was, in fact, an entire city, and it lasted for almost 1,000 years. Today, numerous temples and structures are intact, giving visitors a unique and comprehensive introduction to Maya history and culture.
