and the ruins are one of the most inspiring journeys
you'll ever make. Visiting these ancient Mayan cities is
a great way to spend your vacation. Places like
Chichen Itza, Palenque, Merida, Tulum,
Tikal and Uxmal
are just some of the great ruins in the Southern Mexico,
Belize, Guatemala areas. The Mayan ruins of central
America are from cities that fell into decline long
before Columbus. But many of the traditions reflected in
the architecture and art from these sites live on in the
modern Mayan world.
|Many of the
Mayan sites are located near the Yucatan Peninsula,
spilling over to the lowland rainforests of Mexico to
the east and Belize in the west, some of Guatemala and
eastern part of
translates to mean "mouth of the well of Itza." Chichen
is the best known, best restored, and arguably most
impressive Mayan ruin. It's also not entirely Mayan.
Chichen got off the ground around 550 AD. Like most
Mayan cities, Chichen was abandoned in the 10th century,
then resettled around 1000 AD. Abandoned again in the
14th century, but it remained the site for pilgrimages
for many years. Chichen had two principal wells, or
cenote: one sacred and the other for everyday needs. The
sacred well, a largish 195 feet across by 120 feet deep,
was used in worship, and offerings were continually made
Beloved by many who declare it to be the most beautiful
Mayan ruin, Palenque sits proudly in Palenque National
Park in the state of Chiapas. The region around Palenque
has the highest average rainfall in Mexico, watering a
chokingly dense rainforest. The site covers 15 square
miles. Set against a hill, the city was built in such a
way that it could be seen for days as one ventured
through the rain forest from the coast.
Other spectacular sites are Tulum, Copan
and Uxmal, just some of the hundreds of ruins.
