Are you looking for the perfect tour for your next group trip to Southeast Mexico? If you’re about to travel to Cancun, Riviera Maya or Merida, you must discover the local Mayan ruins, each one with their own charm and personality. More than a great time, this archeological zone is ideal to get into the local history and the interesting world of one of the most important civilizations of the old world.
Tulum, the only beachfront Mayan city
Tulum is located one hour-drive from Playa del Carmen, in the Riviera Maya, and is one of the most gorgeous spots of the Yucatan Peninsula thanks to the impressive ocean view it offers. An interesting fact about Tulum is that it is located in front of a reef that use to be a natural shield against enemies coming by sea. If you have enough time, don’t forget to take a boat tour to admire the city as the ancient Mayans did.
Chichen Itza, Wonder of the World
If you are visiting this site of the world, Chichen Itza is a must and has easy access from the main local destinations. As it was a major city for Mayan civilization, we highly recommend hiring a guided tour and hearing the interesting history beside these constructions. Don’t forget to bring cash and purchase some beautiful handcrafts between Kukulkan Castle and the Sacred Cenote. You’ll love the colors and all the creativity of Mayan artisans!
Coba, the apocalipsis capital
Do you know that the stele predicting the end of the world on 2012 was founded in Coba? Beyond this, Coba is a unique place because it is home of the tallest Mayan pyramid in Yucatan Peninsula and one of the few people can climb yet. Coba is larger than other cities, so you can rent bikes and explore the place.
Ek Balam, the jaguar star
There’s no place in the Mayan World as Ek Balam, a place with sculptures well preserved in the main pyramid. Ek Balam is less crowded than other popular archeological sites, which is really convenient for groups.
