Make Time for a Mayan Adventure

Make Time for a Mayan Adventure

December 15, 2014

Even if you come to the Riviera Maya simply for our magnificent beaches and incredible scuba diving, be sure to set aside a little time to learn about the Mayan civilization. Opportunities abound to discover more about its mysteries and, luckily, our knowledgeable friends at Mayaland Tours are ready to point the way. One of our favorite tours is Mayan Temples & Tankah Eco-Adventure Park Excursion, an adventure that begins in Tulum, one of the world's most breathtaking archeological sites. Set on a soaring cliff overlooking the Caribbean's crystal clear waters, Tulum was a major Mayan port and one of the last cities to be inhabited by the Mayans. Close your eyes and imagine that! Next, you'll head to Tankah Eco-Park deep in the heart of the jungle, where you can hop in a Jeep for a ride along untamed trails, zip line through the jungle canopy and take a dip in a cenote. It's a break from the beach you'll cherish for a lifetime.
