An angry mob in Mexico poured water on a clueless female tourist, hurled insults at her and demanded that she be locked up after she ascended the ancient Mayan pyramid and was filmed dancing on the stairs.
The unidentified woman, who is said to be a Spanish national, sparked an outrage Monday when she ignored the rules barring visitors from climbing Mayan Temple of Kukulcán in Chichén Itzá, which was named in 2007 one of the New 7 Wonders of the World by UNESCO.
After reaching the top, she gyrated her hips and waved her arms in celebration, drawing loud jeers from a large group of tourists observing her wild antics from the ground. Some of them were heard calling the disrespectful visitor an “a–hole” and an “idiot” in Spanish.
The woman even entered the temple room before she descended the pyramid, climbing back down 365 steps where she was met by officials with the Mexican Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) — and an angry crowd.
A mob of onlookers yelled at the rebellious woman, hurling insults, water, and even plastic water bottles.
She’s already left the building 😬https://t.co/5zcrYLNdCq

The site has been off-limits to visitors since 2008 to protect it, Riviera Maya News reported.
The woman was arrested and fined, but the amount of the fine is unknown.
“Penalties established by Mexico’s Federal Law on Monuments and Archaeological, Artistic and Historical Areas range anywhere from $2,500 to more than $5,000, depending on the severity of the damage to a protected site,” the Post reports.
