Overview

The Mayan Culture reigned on the Yucatan Peninsula, on the Southe Estern side of Mexico, enclosed by the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. It was in this area, where the Mayans reached their superior degree of development. Nonetheless, the Mayan Civilization covered a vast extension, from Mexico's Southern Pacific Coast and all the way in to Central America. Traces of Maya nomad settlements date back to 1500 BC. We distinguish mainly 3 Mayan periods of social and urban development: Nomad, Mayan Pre-Classical and Mayan Classical. These periods are relatively evident in their building techniques, their carved inscriptions on their pyramids, buildings and temples. The Mayans developed a structure of writing, using hieroglyphs; and so kept record of Mayan findings in mathematics, architecture and astronomy.

Its beauty is characterized by low and horizontal palaces placed around patios and quadrants richly decorated with detailed sculptures. You will be able to view the Pyramid of the Magician, the Nuns' Quarters, the Governor's Palace and the Main Pyramid. The governor's house and the temple of the wizard are considered architectonic marvels by experts for their precise construction and beauty.

The first missionary convent in Mexico was built in Izamal as the city was founded just after 1542.
We will continue to the archaeological site of Chichen Itza, an archaeological site that represents the most intact and impressive of the ruins of the Mayan Civilization that the modern world preserves today. Chichen Itza means "Mouth of the well of the Itzaes".
