    ANCESTRAL LEGACY: THE CULTURAL WEALTH OF THE MAYAN CIVILIZATION

    MAYAN RUINS

    The Mayans were an advanced civilization that flourished in Central America for more than two thousand years, leaving a legacy that still lives on in the region. Although many of its monuments and cities have been covered by jungle and time, the remains of its splendor can still be appreciated in archeological sites like Chichén Itzá, Tulum, and Cobá, all accessible from Cancún.

     

    CHICHÉN ITZÁ: THE CENTER OF THE MAYAN UNIVERSE

    CHICHEN ITZÁ

    Chichén Itzá, located in the peninsula of Yucatán, is the most famous archaeological site of the Mayan culture and a must-visit for anyone interested in history and archeology. This ancient city was one of the most important urban centers of the classic Mayan time and is known for its monumental architecture, like the Kukulcán pyramid, the Warriors’ Temple, and the Mesoamerican Ballgame.

     

    Besides its impressive architecture, Chichén Itzá is known for its astronomical  observatories and its precision in following the celestial movement. During the spring and fall equinox, thousands of visitors go to witness the phenomenon of the descent of the feathered serpent, an optical illusion where it looks like a snake slithering down the Kukulcán pyramid. 

     

    TULUM: THE WALLED CITY NEXT TO THE SEA

    TULUM

    Another distinguished archeological site. Near Cancún is Tulum, an ancient walled city located at the top of a cliff with a view of the Caribbean Sea. Tulum was an important commercial port and ceremonial center for the Mayan civilization during the late postclassic period and it’s known for its great location and well-conserved ruins.
