“Birdmen ritual.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This was centuries before the bungijump, and it's a very interesting mayan ritual boys had to do to prove to his family and community that he was ready to become a man.

If you have never seen it it's really worth your time. You will see that boys had to really be brave to pull this stunt.

“Fantastic show”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Especially if you see it where it all started - in Papantla! If you can't - you can see it in many other places, e.g. Xochimilco floating gardens (in Nuevo Nativitas, near the parking lot), Anthropological Museum in Mexico City (in front of the entrance), Tulum (parking lot), sometimes near the Cholula Pyramid

“Bird Men”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I have seen these guys in Mexico City. It really was a unique experience. It's incredible what these guys can do - breathtaking. If you get an opportunity to see them - go and see them! It's really worth it.
