Mexico is a fascinating destination if you are searching for ancient history mixed with modern attractions exploration. Palenque is an archaeological site that was located on the western edge of the Maya empire in the present-day state of Chiapas, Mexico. Palenque is much smaller than some of its Mayan neighbor cities, but it contains some of the finest architecture and sculptures the Maya ever produced. Most structures in Palenque date from about 600 AD to 800 AD including the Temple of Inscriptions, the only Mesoamerican pyramid built as a funerary monument.
Famous as the only fortified Mayan settlement located on the coast, the ancient city of Tulum is one of the Yucat?n Peninsula’s most visited attractions. In the Mayan Riviera and within easy reach of the beaches of Canc?n, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel, the site’s well-preserved ruins can be seen for miles around due to their location atop 12-meter high cliffs overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Tulum is also famous for its tall walls, giving the site the feel of a fortress and suggesting a military as well as religious significance. Dating from the 13th century, the town was inhabited up until the Spanish arrived in 1544 and contains many other important archaeological finds, including the Temple of the Frescoes (Templo de los Frescos) with its sculptures and reliefs, and the Castillo, the site’s largest building, famous for its cliff side location.
Think Grand Canyon and then double it! The Grand Canyon’s southern sister, the Copper Canyon in Northern Mexico could pretty much eat it alive! One look at this never-ending sight is enough to leave you bewildered at why it isn’t the more famous of the two. The deeper the eye looks the greater the variety of luscious greens gets – it is truly breathtaking. For those with a gusto for adventure, a plunge further the Canyon floor is a must, where you’ll find communities of Tarahumar, a people known for their unrivalled cross-country running ability, developed over generations of living on rough terrain. All in all it’s very, very cool!
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico : One of the most relaxing things to do in Playa del Carmen is to hang out at one of the city’s many rooftop pools. My favorite of the bunch is the pool that sits atop the stylish Be Playa hotel.
You’ll need to spend a minimum of 200 pesos ($9.60) per person to enjoy the pool, but it’s well worth it and that total is still only half the minimum spend at most other rooftop pools in the area. The drinks here are solid and the pool is rarely overcrowded. It’s a great way to beat the heat year-round.. Read more regarding Rooms Playa del Carmen Mexico
The Copper Canyon is in fact a network of canyons which together are several times larger than the Grand Canyon. The most popular way to explore the Copper Canyon is on the “Chihuahua al Pacifico” Railway. The track passes over 37 bridges and through 86 tunnels, rising as high as 2,400 meter (7,900 feet) above sea level featuring spectacular views of the canyons below.
