A Photographer’s Guide to Chichén Itzá

Chichén Itzá hosts an eclectic mix of Toltec and Terminal Classic Maya (Puuc) architectural styles, and is definitely the marquis attraction of the Maya realm. Easily reached by bus or car from either Cancún or Mérida, you’ve got lots of photographic opportunities awaiting you here.

A Photographer’s Guide to Chichén Itzá is a comprehensive guide to the ruins, with an eye toward making the photographs you take there the very best they can be.

This eBook will give you:
