Chichén Itzá History There are many Maya legends about the rise and fall of Chichén Itzá. It is a very old city and many structures were originally built in the tradition of the Puuc Maya of southern Yucatan. But sometime during the Late Classic period, the “Magicians of the Water”, called Itzá in the Mayan language, arrived by sea from the north, bringing with them many Toltec customs from central Mexico. The design for the Temple of Kukulkan, as well as the introduction of the winged serpent god himself, called Quetzalcoatl in central Mexico, were introduced to the Yucatec Maya by the Itzá people. Before long, the Itzá ruled at Chichén Itzá and maintained an uneasy alliance with the rulers of two other important Maya cities: Uxmal and Mayapan.
Besides the famous pyramid, another well-known landmark at Chichén Itzá is the sacred cenote, a deep, fresh water sinkhole that descends 70 feet into the limestone before reaching the water's surface. In Mayan, chi means mouth and chén means well, so it is from the sacred cenote and the Itzá people that the city of Chichén Itzá gets its name.
About 250 years before the arrival of the Spaniards, the rulers of Mayapan requested permission to pilgrimage to the sacred cenote at Chichén Itzá so they could perform a sacrifice ritual in hopes of learning the will of the gods. It was believed that if the right person was thrown into the sacred cenote and lived, then they would return with an important prophecy that would guide their rulers.
 
During the ritual, as one after another sacrificial victim failed to return to the surface of the sacred cenote, an ambitious commoner, who had taught himself how to swim, dove into the depths of the cenote and returned to the surface. His name was Hunac Ceel, and he claimed to have an important message from the gods: He was to rule all of Yucatan! None would argue with the will of the Maya gods. So began the great Cocom Dynasty of Mayapan, which would eventually overthrow the Itzá and rule central Yucatan until the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors.

The Temple of Kukulkan in the Mayan city of Chichén Itzá should be on any traveller's list of one of the places to visit on the planet. Fortunately, you don't have to pitch a tent in the shadow of the ruins, as many archaeologists have done. There are many types of accommodations to suit every traveler's needs, from hotels, motels and resorts to Mexican timeshares and bed and breakfasts. Consider timeshares for rent as an alternative. Time is booked in weekly increments rather than having to worry about moving from room to room.
