Bienvenida Primavera!!

Chichen-Itza

Chichen-Itza

Chichén Itzá, Yucatán

Capital de los antiguos mayas itzáes que habitaron en la Península de Yucatán durante el periodo Clásico (1200-1521), esta zona arqueológica es famosa por el espectacular juego de luces y sombras que cada año ocurre durante los equinoccios de primavera y otoño en una de las esquinas del imponente Templo de Kukulcán o El Castillo. Ahí, durante aproximadamente 30 minutos -que bien pueden convertirse en la mejor experiencia cósmica de tu vida-, puedes admirar cómo el cuerpo del dios Serpiente Emplumada “se va dibujando”, de arriba a abajo, hasta completar la silueta serpentina de la deidad, coronada por una enorme cabeza de reptil que, poderosa, destaca a los pies de las escalinatas de este magnífico templo. Un espectáculo que sencillamente, ¡no te puedes perder!

Kohunlich

The site of Kohunlich is relatively large, about 21 acres surrounded by tropical forest. The layout of the buildings and the remains of water-pipes and tanks suggests that Kohunlich was an important city in its time. On this site are close to 200 mounds, although many of them still remain inexcavados and invaded even by the vegetacion.2

archaeological information available suggests that Kohunlich received its first inhabitants near the year 200 A.D. , although the majority of the most significant buildings were developed between the year 250 and 600 a.d. Also it can be assumed that Kohunlich represented a focal point for the trade between the cities of the Yucatan Peninsula and several ancient Mayan cities in Central America.

The Building A-1 or of the masks is one of the most visited because it has monumental stucco reliefs that still preserve the red paint that covered the entire temple. It is likely that this building was built during the Early Classic period and has a greater relationship with the so-called Petén style.

The old name of the site is unknown. The word Kohunlich with which is called is not of Mayan origin, which is the result of a phonetic transcription of its original name in English Cohoon Ridge, that means Lomerio of corozos or Corozal, drawn up by the archaeologist Victor Segovia, who was the first to explore the region. The site is known since 1912 when the archaeologist Raymond Merwin visited the prehispanic settlement north of the Rio Hondo.

Costa Maya

South of the country, where the Mexican Caribbean offers warm waters in turquoise shades and sandy beaches, is a land blessed by a contrasting ecosystem. Among the tropical forest, wetlands, white, sandy beaches, coral reefs, abundant wild life and wonderful archaeological sites lies the so called Costa Maya, ranging from Punta Herreros to Xcalak, passing through the Magic Town of Bacalar, the pristine beach of Mahahual and the city of Chetumal.

Costa Maya is the perfect place for alternative tourism and delving into the Mayan culture, as many communities still   preserve these ancient traditions. Follow the trail and discover the ruins of Kohunlich, Dzibanche and Kinichna, three important archaeological sites that will unveil some of the mysteries of the Mayan society.

Ecotourism lovers will have different options from which to choose. Enjoy the Hondo River, a natural border between Mexico and Belize, where you will be able to participate in adventure tourism or simply sail on the river in a kayak. Therein lies the Manatee Sanctuary, marine mammals known as sea cows, a natural protected area spanning 281,000 hectares going from the Hondo River, to the Bay of Chetumal and the Guerrero Lagoon, where you will also be able to see the flora and fauna of the region.

In the Bay of Chetumal lies the fishing town of Calderitas which has a bird observatory and where you will be able to delight the most discerning palates with delicious dishes prepared with fish and seafood. You will love the Magic Town of Bacalar with its calm atmosphere and its old buildings. Visit the church of San Joaquin and the Fort of San Felipe and marvel at one of the most beautiful lagoons in all of Mexico, the lagoon of seven colors, which is 26 miles long and a great place for water sports.

Diving enthusiasts will find an underwater paradise in the Banco Chinchorro, the largest coral atoll in the world; discover native remains and its abundant marine life. Very close to Banco Chinchorro lies the Mesoamerican Reef, the largest coral reef in the Atlantic Ocean, a treasure trove of biodiversity with over 500 varieties of fish.

Once back on land, explore Chetumal, the capital of the state of Quintana Roo, where you can visit the Museum of Mayan Culture, the Biouniverzoo, where you will find exact copies recreating the natural habitat of the most representative species of southeastern Mexico, as well as the iconic Museum of the City of Chetumal. Stroll along its spectacular boulevard and experience a unique sunset in this paradise in southern Mexico.
