This is in fact Chichén Itzá in Mexico. The Tazumal complex is not nearly was well preserved the Chichén Itzá pyramid. Tazumal, while important, is not as spectacular as Chichén Itzá nor Copan. None of the photos shown above are Tazumal. Tazumal does not have any complete pyramid. Tazumal's pyramid is not nearly as tall as the ones shown here. I'm guessing it is around 3 stories tall.

THIS IS NOT TAZUMAL IN EL SALVADORE!!! In fact, I do not think any of these photos come from Tazumal, El Salvadore.

i've been there its pretty cool
