Chichén Itzá is widely considered to be one of Mexico’s best-restored archaeological sites. With only the briefest of interruptions, Chichén Itzá served as a sacred Mayan site for more than 700 years, and by the 11th century had become the political and religious capital of a revived Mayan empire under Toltec rule.

Certain stones native to the area are thought to have healing properties including jade and quartz which are used for massages. Local spas provide stone therapy to visitors to help cleanse the body of toxins and heal energy blockage.
