Day trip to Mayan Temple Chichen Itza in Mexico

I grabbed my GoPro and headed to Mexico to take in the Mayan 7th wonder of the world, Chichen Itza.Callum Watt Maketh The Man Mexico chichen itza go proWhilst enroute we stopped off at a local Mayan store, which was filled with hand painted skulls.2014-08-28 11.35.02 Callum Watt Maketh The Man Mexico skullMexico shoppingMoving in from the shop we fancied some lunch and tucked into a typical Mayan dish and watched as the locals performed an interesting bottle dance.

Soon afterwards we went on to meet some of the local dancers, and then the protectors of the temple we were about to enter.Callum Watt Maketh The Man MexicoCallum Watt Maketh The Man Mexico chichen itza localsOn to the temple, and the pictures (and video) will do the talking.

The main area is filled with temples.  Whilst it is crowded at times, you are best to wonder around the place and take in all the sights by yourself.  If you do this, you will also find some of the other ruins in the gardens, and maybe even see some basking lizards.2014-08-28 14.18.02Chichen Itza garden templeCallum Watt Maketh The ManCallum Watt Maketh The Man Chichen Itza MexicoP1090855P1090842

Welcome to Maketh The Man, a lifestyle and travel blog by Callum Watt and Anton Welcome.

Maketh The Man launched in 2010 as a home to showcase male jewellery. From the best chunky necklaces to our favourite signet rings. Whilst the Mark Twain quote does say "Clothes maketh the man", we actually think its the finer details that make an outfit really pop. Hence why we decided to focus our attention on how to accessorize your wardrobe.

We quickly expanded our coverage to include all accessories from the best footwear, to the most stylish bags and pocket squares.

Today Maketh The Man has grown to be one of the UKs top male lifestyle blogs covering a range of different categories. From the greatest holiday destinations to the tastiest cocktail or finest whisky recommendations, with a healthy dose of technology and grooming thrown in.
