Travel and cultural images from the country of Mexico, mostly from The Yucatan.
Chichen-Itza is one of the most well known of the Maya ruins on The Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. Chichen-Itza, which means Mouth of the Well of the Itzas is named so because of the sacred cenote that exists on the edge of the archaeological site, and the Itzas that came to live and rule in the city.
Uxmal is the Maya word for the place of plentiful harvests. Ux meaning harvest and mal meaning a repeated number or action. This site is located in the center of the Puuc region where there are a few very fertile hills, the only hills in the landscape for hundreds of kilometers across the Yucatan peninsula.
Tulum means The Walled City. The wall itself is an unusual feature of the city, being only one of two walled cities found so far on The Yucatan peninsula. The ruins are heavily fortified on three sides by a twenty-foot thick by thirteen-foot high wall, with the fourth side dropping off of a spectacular cliff into the Caribbean. It was known for its strong fortifications and its location as an ancient watch point, guarding the trade routes from both sea and land and even serving as an important center of commerce for the region.
Cobá is a beautiful, rustic, site that has barely begun its restoration. Many of its buildings remain as a heap of rocks covered in vegetation and trees. The groups of buildings that have been restored are sometimes more than a kilometer apart, connected by sacbes, or white roads.
