TOURS RIVIERA MAYA
Located in the southeast of Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo, east of Chichén Itzá and northwest of Tulum, Cobá is an archaeological site of the Mayan culture, whose population was about 50,000 inhabitants and an area of eighty square kilometers. It reached its peak as a metropolis between 300 and 600 AD, before the existence of Chichen Itza. It was built mostly in the middle of the Classic period of the Mayan civilization in the years 500 and 900 of our era.
There is an assumption that, from 900 or 1000 AD, Coba came into conflict with Chichén Itzá, of which the latter was successful.
One of the possible meanings of «Cobá», due to its proximity to the lagoons, is «chopped water» or «water with moss».
The main pyramid «Nohoch Mul», is the highest pyramid in the Yucatan Peninsula and the second in the Mayan world, with 42 m that is equivalent to a 10-story building.
In Coba you can enjoy incredible views from the top of its pyramid and attractions such as the so-called «Estela Uno», famous because it mentions the end of an era with the date 12/12/12, which was thought to mark the end of the world.
Being a magical Mayan city, Tulum, it keeps a lot of history and mysticism.
From the year 564 this ancient city located on the shore of the Caribbean Sea has been one of the greatest representatives of the Mayan culture. It is originally known as «Zamá», which means «City of dawn».
The city of Tulum is a portal to the past that allows you to enjoy the nature and history of our ancestors. At present it is a great tourist attraction of the Riviera Maya.
Mainly famous for its admirable archeological sites that reflect what the Mayan culture was hundreds of years ago. It is believed that most of these buildings were built in the post-classic period of the Mayan civilization, between 1200 and 1450. The Mayan culture gave much importance to the planning of the city according to cosmology, and so the construction of the city of Tulum was based on the concept called «the four corners» that refers to the cardinal points.
Tulum has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The light that falls over its delicate waters creates a perfect contrast with the white sand of the area. In addition, it is not only a Caribbean paradise, its beaches are also a turtle sanctuary.
The vast wealth of Tulum has given him the enormous fame he has in many parts of the world, such as its flora and fauna species, its refreshing and crystalline waters, and its great history hidden in its beautiful archaeological zone.
CENOTE IK KIL
One of the many wonders in Mexico, for its shapes, its fresh waters and its beauty are the Cenotes of the south of the country.
The word Cenote comes from the Mayan word «dzonoot» which means «hole with water». The Cenotes are natural wells and are connected by rivers or underground tunnels. There are different types of Cenotes: open-pit, semi-open and underground or in a cave. Its classification is related to the age of the Cenote, those that are fully open are mature and those that keep their dome intact are the youngest.
Surrounded by exotic plants and trees, the Cenote Ik-Kil is ideal for a pleasant time, enjoying its fresh waters and its nature. It is a habitat for different species and wild birds.
It begins as an underground chamber produced by the dissolution of the limestone that in turn is caused by the infiltration of rainwater. It is estimated that in the state of Yucatan there are more than 2,400 trainings of this type.
The Cenotes were formed in times when the sea level fell, in most cases, the Cenotes are widening of underground river networks.
Water supply was the reason to develop elements of sacred geography, symbolic scenarios and spaces for rituals of rain, life, death, rebirth and fertility. For the Mayans control of the cenotes meant political and social control over life and death. Experts have found that most of the remains found by archaeologists and divers belonged to children under 11 years of age and male adults.
Thousands of people from all over the world visit the Yucatan peninsula, since here you can find the largest number of Cenotes in the whole world and they are clearly more than beautiful.
