An odd scenario recently occurred at a historic World Heritage site that angered many visitors.

The traveller was brought to safety once she got back on the ground while locals urged that she be put in jail.

This video was shared by Twitter user @davenewworld_2, and the post’s caption read, “A disrespectful tourist climbs an ancient Mayan pyramid in Mexico and gets booed.”

One person in the Twitter comments wrote, “I’m sure they the pyramids took a huge hit with all that foot traffic, and they had to change the rules to preserve it. People should respect that regardless of what country they’re from. ALWAYS respect the people and lands you visit on your travels. You are a guest!” A second person added, “WOW. This is beyond disrespectful.” A third person wrote, “Almost 30 years ago, we climbed the pyramid at Chichen Itza. Even then stairs were so worn and steep that my partner had a full-on panic attack trying to descend. Glad for the changes to preserve these irreplaceable monuments,” said a third.
