1. Chichen Itza7 New Wonders Of The World- and deserves it. (The Pyramids Of Giza are the only one of the 7 Wonders of the World to make it on the new list as well!) It is a gorgeous pyramid. Twice a year- on the spring equinox and the autumn equinox the sun shines on the steps in such a way that the Mayan god, Quetzalcoatl, or the Plumed Serpent can be fully seen. That is the only time you can see all seven parts of the snake's tail formed by the sunlight on the stone. (I went in March and as you can see, six of the seven sections are visible.) It's pretty cool. There's more to Chichen Itza than the pyramid though, there are a lot of other beautiful ruins to explore.
Tulum is beautiful. It's different from the other ruins because it is the most well-preserved ruins on the coast. The view of old Myan ruins on cliffs above an azure ocean is stunning and unique.

4. Xel HaXel Ha is a fun park you can go to. You can jump off cliffs into water, snorkel in the ocean, swing on a rope into water, watch iguanas fight, challenge yourself by climbing ropes, or just lazily float down a river.
