Agua Azul – ahh, how beautiful. The waterfalls and the color of the water is absolutely gorgeous. Once we got our fill of Aqua Azul, we headed out to Chicken Itza to see the ruins there. The illaborately dressed Mayan dancers were very entertaining.

In Ball Court at sunset the place was packed with people all there to watch the snake (the sun’s shadows) make its way from the corner tiers slithering up the southern side of the pyramid with the sun’s movement. This marks the beginning of the winter solstice.
