Tulum Archaeological Site

Perched majestically along the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, the Tulum Archaeological Site stands as a testament to the Mayan’s architectural prowess. Once a thriving port city, Tulum captivates visitors with its well-preserved buildings and the imposing wall that encapsulates its history. 

The Temple of the Frescoes, adorned with detailed murals, and El Castillo, a pyramid that overlooks the sea, are just a glimpse into the site's splendor. The fusion of historical architecture with the natural beauty of its beachfront location makes Tulum a uniquely compelling destination.

Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, is a marvel of Mayan civilization. Its grandeur and astronomical precision are embodied in the Pyramid of Kukulkan, where during the equinoxes, a shadow creates the illusion of a serpent descending the pyramid. 

The Great Ball Court, another architectural wonder, echoes with the ancient games once played there. The site offers a journey back in time, revealing the complexities and mysteries of the Mayan culture.

Ek Balam

Ek Balam, a gem amidst the Yucatan's historical landscape, offers a glimpse into the unexplored aspects of Mayan history. Its ongoing excavations continue to unveil the richness of its past. 

The Acropolis, towering over the site, showcases some of the most intricate and well-preserved stucco façades in the Mayan world. Visitors are often struck by the detailed carvings that offer a narrative of the Mayan way of life, making Ek Balam a captivating site for history enthusiasts.


Coba archaeological site

In the heart of the dense jungle, Coba provides a more rugged and adventurous exploration. Known for its extensive system of sacbeob, or ancient roads, Coba was once a bustling Mayan trade hub.

The site’s main attraction is the Nohoch Mul pyramid, recognized as the highest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan Peninsula. The climb to the top is steep but rewarding, offering panoramic views that stretch across the jungle. Coba’s blend of history and natural beauty offers an immersive experience unlike any other in the Mayan world.


Muyil archaeological site
