  • Tikal, you have my heart ❤️ 

This past February I had the honor of visiting the Mayan ruins of Tikal in Guatemala. One thing that stuck out to me is how much of the ancient city is still unearthed. When we asked the guide why so much of it was still covered he responded, “we don’t want to disturb the nature that has made its home here for the past 900 years”. 

It turns out only 20% of the site has been excavated to date but thanks to advances in science, the entire city has been mapped. For miles all you see is rain forest with dots of structures along the expanse. If you look at the third picture in the slide, that’s an unearthed temple that’s just as beautiful as the ones touched by the sun. 

What has been your favorite place to visit?

  • Most of you have probably seen the famous Mayan Ruins, for example in Tulum. I must admit that I find history quite interesting and I think it’s incredible to see structures and buildings that are thousands of years old. 
Pictured here are the Xaman Ha Ruins. They are not very famous, but what is cool about these, is that they are free to visit, there are basically no tourists (especially now), and they’re located in the middle of a residential area in between luxury apartment buildings and houses.

  • Chichen Itza, Mexico’s most famous set of Mayan ruins. It is still in a really good condition so it gives visitors an opportunity to see what life was like in ancient times.

  • 💖 Its all about the ruins here in this small village and the river float via Sian Kaan, bear Tulum.

🦋 The ancient Maya area of Tulum is located on the Yucatan Peninsula, juxtaposed the Caribbean Sea. Archaeological research has dated the ancient Maya ruins back to the Postclassic epoch of 1200 AD. 

🌞 As at all Mayan sites, the temples here were likely built to align with astronomical phenomena.

🕯 Working without telescopes, the Mayan nevertheless had an amazingly sophisticated knowledge of astronomy and mapped the movements of the stars and planets with great accuracy.

  • Nouvelle étape voyage mexicain.
.
Palenque...
.
Tapie dans un écrin végétal, entourée des bruits des singes hurleurs palenque est magnifique.
.
Érigée entre 600 et 800 ans après JC, la découvrir au petit matin au milieu de la brume est presque inquiétant et fascinant.
.
la trentaine de monuments arrachés à la jungle ne correspond qu'à une infime partie du territoire global.
.
Les ruines restantes demeurent sous un linceul végétal...
.
.
Le groupe de la croix comprend trois temples  sur pyramide.
.
Construits entre 683 et 692.
Ils figurent un parcours cosmique en trois stations.
La première représente le monde d origine des hommes.
On descend ensuite dans le monde souterrain du passage du soleil nocturne symbolisé par le jaguar.
la dernière station et la renaissance de la fertilité des couches supérieures de la terre.
.
La richesse de ce groupe réside dans la correspondance des différents cycles.

  • Почти сомелье 🥃
⠀
Все знают про мою любовь к 🍻
Да что там далеко ходить, @travellaga предсказала мне выходные в пивнухе и, вы знаете, сбылось! 🤣
⠀
Приехав в Мексику, я не могла не продегустировать местный алкоголь 😋
Я вроде как уже писала, что однажды устроила «дегустацию» текилы прямо с утра 😅
Поэтому, попав в Вальядолид на настоящую дегустацию, было где разгуляться!
⠀
Что мы пробовали:
🥃 Бланко - самая молодая и самая распространённая #текила
Запомнилась как мягкая и более лёгкая.
⠀
🥃 Репосадо - ее ещё называют «отдохнувшая» текила. И, вы знаете, она-таки неплохо отдохнула! 😃
/ну и мы после дегустации тоже 😂/
Эта уже будет покрепче, с более ярко выраженным вкусом. Отлично идёт вместе с сангритой.
⠀
🥃 Аньехо - самый топчик. Дорогой, сложный и богатый вкус. Ну и цена под стать 👌
Кстати, есть ещё экстра-аньехо: ещё насыщеннее и ароматнее.
⠀
🌵 Ну и напоследок: при производстве текилы не пострадал ни один кактус.
Для ее изготовления используют плоды голубой агавы.
⠀
Всем чин-чин 🥂 и хорошего настроения!
⠀
А какой алкогольный напиток ваш самый любимый❓

  • My clients have chosen the All-Inclusive Riu Cancun for their escape next month.The Riu is situated in the heart of one of Cancun's most popular areas, and is in a prime location on a white sandy beach with crystal clear turquoise water. 

If you’re looking for a few days to pamper your body, the Renova Spa with a wide range of treatments as well as a gym and Jacuzzi won’t disappoint. Or simply relax in paradise on holiday by sunbathing at any of the 3 fresh water swimming pools. 

Besides heavenly beaches, Cancun’s surroundings also offer stunning Mayan ruins. Chichén Itzá has a massive step pyramid known as El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan, which dominates the ancient city. Nightly sound-and-light shows illuminate the buildings' sophisticated geometry.

  • LINK IN BIO. First petition of many! Let’s help prevent a bill from passing that will allow government officials to build a not so eco-friendly tourist resort on old Mayan ruins in Guatemala. Guatemalans have been working to preserve the area for years, if this bill passes many will be forced to move away to find another job. Find out more by clicking the link in my bio. We can do this! :)

  • We thought that the Mayan Ruins 🗿in Tulum were open so we arrived there first thing in the morning and what do we find? No one cause they were closed! 😂 
However, we found a tour that took us close to the ruins to have a view from the boat and then took us to the coral reef to snorkel. 🐠🐡
It was only us and a friend on the boat so at the end, we had a great time!👌🏻

  • ☠️ EXPLORA DESCUBRE VIAJA ☠️

Un paseo por Chicanná. Una ciudad maya impresionante con unos tallados increíbles. Descubre el mural del guerrero jaguar que te da la bienvenida.

According to a local, Jaime’s inside the 🐍👀eyes of a serpent, 🐊👄 jaws of a crocodile, and 🐆🐾 claws of a jaguar at the entrance of a Chicanná ruin. 

It’s thought that priests would enter to get to the underworld, conduct their rituals, and come back to settlement as part of Mayan religious ceremonies.

Chicanná is thought to have been at its peak as early as 300 BCE, the excavated buildings were built from starting 600 AD. During excavation non-local materials were found at the site from as far away as the Guatemala highlands and Honduras. Chicanná has often been considered the smaller elitist center of the Maya, which served as a residential zone for the rulers.

  • This was just after climbing those Mayan ruins in the background! It was an awesome experience in general, but I also weighed about 230+ lbs at the time and was mostly sedentary, so it was a turning point for me when I realized that I can do hard things. Since this picture was taken I’ve lost almost 50 lbs (I have lost a total of 80 and counting though since I had my daughter), and I haven’t stopped climbing since. This is good reminder to always believe in yourself, and keep going!!

  • Follow @mapsandwordsblog 📸 for more travel content.| Tikal is the ruin of an ancient Mayan city. In fact, it's one of the largest archaeological sites of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization.

It is located in Guatemala, in the Petén department. 🇬🇹

Tikal is currently part of the Tikal National Park, a site declared by UNESCO as one of the World Heritage sites. 

It's a popular tourist destination in Guatemala. And no wonder why! It is truly a magical place! 💫

I -Andres @andres.viviani - had the chance to visit this place in 2018 during my trip through Guatemala. Have you been there already?

天体観測が行われていたという、マヤ遺跡のパレンケ。
弾丸世界一周に行くと決めた少し前に、何かのテレビ番組で観てピン✨と来て行きたくなった場所。

最近、星読みに興味があって、動画の講座とか見て勉強している。
過去に辿って来た旅が、ここで繋がったかとちょっと納得😏

  • MEXICO • PALENQUE'S MAYAN RUINS⁠⠀
Palenque's jungle backdrop adds an air of mystery to the place although the central section you're allowed to visit has been impeccably manicured and maintained.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Walking around, there are a couple of things it's good to bear in mind. Firstly, everything was made without the use of metal tools (they used materials such as obsidian), pack animals or the wheel. And secondly, the structures were all covered in red and blue paint. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
A group of three temples, built on step pyramids, are meant to represent the mythical places the gods were born. The Temple of the Cross, shown in this image, was to the celestial god.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Palenque was definitely our favourite Mayan ruin of our trip.⁠⠀

  • Soundtrack: 🎼 𝐁𝐑𝐔𝐂𝐄 𝐒𝐏𝐑𝐈𝐍𝐆𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐄𝐍 - 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐆𝐇𝐎𝐒𝐓 𝐎𝐅 𝐓𝐎𝐌 𝐉𝐎𝐀𝐃 🎼

It felt like magic to experience the sunrise among ruins and jungle when discovering the Tikal National Park and appreciated the jungle from the top of a Mayan pyramid. We enjoyed the awakening of the beings of the Mayan Jungle and saw and heard the jungle and all its residents fauna come to life.

  • Chichen Itza is the most well known and frequently visited Mayan ruins site in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and is also one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
The Pyramid of Kukulkan at Chichén Itzá, is a remarkable architectural spectacle, but the thing I found most interesting is how the pyramid was used as a calendar: four stairways, each with 91 steps and a platform at the top, making a total of 365, equivalent to the number of days in a calendar year!

  • En los tiempos que uno poda subir.
Chac Mool  en su clasica postura. Plato sobre el vientre. apoyado sobre sus codos, con las rodillas dobladas y la cabeza girada 90 grados hacia un lado.
Templo de Kukulkán  de fondo.

  • Chichen Itzá is one of the 7 wonders of the world. It was the center of pilgrimage for the Mayans for over 1,000 years.

The term Chichen Itzá means ‘the mouth at the well of Itza’. It is believed Itza means ‘water magicians’, deriving from the Mayan Itz for ‘magic’ and á for ‘water’. El Castillo (the Temple of Kukulkan) is the famous pyramid (that I’m standing in front of 🤩) which dominates the site of Chichen Itza —  it actually sits on another much older temple (so incredible!) If you end up in Tulum, make sure to take the drive here! Lucky to have checked ✅ this off the bucket list!!📍Yucatán, Mexico 🇲🇽
