Following the Mayan foot steps

Traveling in Mexico have been one of my best travel experiences, as I have mentioned before, it is a country which contain so much dramatic history, interesting culture, beatiful nature and kind people! We based our planning of our trip around the Mayan ancient cities and pyramids some we found to be a bit disappointing and others were magnificent.

Chichén Itzá (Cancun, Mexico) – I was a bit disappointed about the Chichén Itzá ruins as it was way more touristic than any other ruin site that we visited(Even at 8:00 in the morning when the park opened it was busy)  and many of the ruins in the park was not possible to get a real good and close look at.unspecified-25
Uxmal (Merida, Mexico) – these ruins was my absolute favorite; they were far away from everything and you would have a fantastic view over the jungle. You could also walk up the stairs on the ruins, which made the experience more immersive. unspecified-24

Palenque (San Cristobal, Mexico) – this park contained many ruins of different kind and structures, which were really interesting to see.unspecified-29

Tikal (Flores, Guatemala)   We were in a bit of a hurry when we visited Trikal as we need to go cross the boarder to Belize before 22.00 in the night. The ruins and the park as beautiful and a bit wild. If you stay until down you will be able to hear the howler moneys, who have a very scary and wild sound!

If I had to do it over, I would have either study up on the history of the Mayans before my trip or hired a guide to get to full experience of this extraordinary civilization.
