The ball court for religious rituals
The south face of the temple with snake mouths open at the bottom – 34 meters high. You can’t climb it anymore – closed in 2006 to preserve it.
The vendors set up along the way
We had a delicious buffet lunch in Piste at the gorgeous Hacienda Xaybeh Dcamara with many Mexican delicacies and a dancing show!
We went on to Valladolid “a real Mexican city”
Headed home. Easy roads to drive and no traffic!
