All reviews bug spray mayan culture tour guide interesting ruins small site bring water well worth the visit worth the trip rented a car cozumel island entrance fee own pace cruise ship an excursion great guide royal caribbean iguanas
The Maya civilization put simply is an amazing culture that no longer exist... the vastness of their cities spread across a large area and the knowledge which they possessed about math and the stars and even points of the compass amaze me. How can such...More
