Without a doubt one of the top destinations of Chiapas, the taking off, wild swathed sanctuaries of Palenque are a national treasure, and one of the best specimens of Mayan architecture in Mexico. Its magnificent outline and cutting are commonly seen on imperial homes, asylums and tombs, all with view of emerald-green, wild secured slants. Palenque has transformed into a fatal attraction for many archaeologists.

Stroll around the enormous ball court and unravel the secret of the dazzling time sanctuary, El Castillo, at Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula, to find out why this site was voted as one of the ‘7 Wonders of the World.’
In the same way, as other Egyptian havens, these asylums were amassed to play with light, and many secrets of the Mayan galactic calendar are unveiled when one fathoms the architecture of ‘time sanctuaries’ here.

The wild vistas alone justify the struggle you have done to visit Coba. If you crave for living the scenes from Indiana Jones, then this is your ruin. It’s set somewhere down in the wild, and countless remains have yet to be revealed. Walk around obsolete pathways, soaring vineyard-secured slopes, and ascend to the peak of Nohoch Mul for marvelous scenes of the surrounding wilderness – the most surprising Mayan building design on the Yucatan Peninsula. Be careful and do not home base near to the lake, as it has immense crocodiles.

Two huge pyramids, the Avenue of the Dead, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl – Teotihuacan, 50km from Mexico City, are the most breathtaking of Mexico’s ancient settlements. A thousand years ago everybody had heard about the Aztecs, it was the center of an empire that may have reached out as far south as El Salvador.
These buildings of wonderful pyramids are arranged amidst what was before the Mesoamerica’s most unmistakable city. It’s a colossal site and anyone lucky to come here will be surprised by the innovative pinnacle of the Teotihuacan Society.

This was a champion amongst the most recognizable Mayan community in the Usumacinta territory, by virtue of its prime zone over stream business. Beside its magnificent, ornamented lacquers and housetop combs, it is arranged in a wild that is flooding with exotic life. If you don’t see any howler monkeys, you’ll emphatically hear their instinctive voices, and there are numerous creepy crawly monkeys and red macaws that possess the tall trees here.
I want to hear from you, so let’s get connected friends!
