The huge Ball Court at Chichen Itza is the largest there is and, it's quite impressive! Over 500 feet long and more than 200 feet wide is must have been the super stadium of its day. It certain makes you wonder how teams of 7...More

I wonder how our athletic fields of today would be viewed if left alone for hundreds of years. We do not understand the game involved with this athletic field. We do not understand why there were such grave consequences for the losing team. The losing...More

This ball court is just stunning. Fun to hear the acoustics - always a crowd chanting or clapping at the far end. We take sport seriously now, but this was really life or death. Every game ended 1-0. One score and it's over. It seems...More

With a little imagination it is not hard to travel back in time and imagine what a spectacle the ball games must have been.

Take your time exploring this field. It is really huge. I have seen a couple of other pelota-fields. Another one that is well preserved is in northern Honduras, but it's a bit smaller. Some of the reliefs are in amazing shape, acoustics works and the...More

It is important to say that these ball courts are amazing but are a part of the whole attraction that is Chichen Itza - specifically that means you can only visit it if you buy an entrance ticket to the whole thing. To visit the...More

I still wonder at this place how they played with a 5kg rubber ball and managed to get it through a stone ring. The measurements of the ball court are all calculated in astronomical details. Mind-bogling
