Valladolid, Izamal, and Chichen Itza!

A game was played on this ball court that was a combination of basketball and soccer, where players would bounce the ball off their hips and knees to get it through one of the hoops on either side. It has been speculated the captain of one of the teams would be sacrificed to the gods.

Cenote (pronounced sen-oat-a), a sacrificial well, where the skulls of 250 children were found.
