Very impressive, but tinged with disappointment. I was looking forward to climbing to the top of the Great Pyramid, only to learn that visitors have not been allowed to do that since as far back as 2005. Something about too many falling accidents, including fatalities. Given that I passed on the opportunity to visit Chichen Itza while vacationing on Yucatan Peninsula in the past – the last time, in 2004 – I was quite dismayed when learning of the restriction.

Nonetheless, a fascinating place!

    I climbed it back in 1990. Trust me – you’re not missing much.

    Then again, if you went all that way, I can see your disappointment…
