Get ready to put a big checkmark on your bucket list! While visiting The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort, a trip to Chichén Itzá is a must-do. These Mayan ruins are home to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Kukulcan pyramid, or El Castillo. People from all over the world travel to this ancient religious and cultural hub to gaze upon the massive stepped pyramids and stately temples. You'll be transported back through the history of Mexico as you take in the detailed architecture that dates back to 750 AD.
For a truly unforgettable experience, I recommend visiting the ruins on either equinox (March 21 or Sept. 21). Be there at 3 p.m. to see the sunlight shine on the pyramid's north side, creating seven triangles of light and shadow — giving shape to the body of a slithering serpent!
