I just got back from a very quick but reinvigorating vacation with my girlfriend from Mexico.
First of all I would like to point out that I did not go there with the intent to discover and learn as much as possible from the sorrounding since I really needed most of all a real vacation, you know what I'm talking about, sea, cocktails and intense tanning session... For this reason I will not go much in depth with my review of the Riviera Maya.
Mexico’s many exquisite ruins of former Aztec and Mayan cultures are reminiscent of well advanced former civilizations, which were well advanced already thousands of years ago.
Chichen Itza and Tulum are some of the best kept archaeological sites in Mexico. The unique peninsula of Yucatan is blessed with some of Mexico’s finest tropical beaches and is scattered with Mayan ruins and archaeological sites.
Since Yucatan was hit by an asteroid millions of years ago it has a geography characterized by an intricate system of underground tunnels and caves which is unique in the world.
A must-do-experiece is diving in a Cenote a natural cave filled with 50m deep water
July is not the best season to visit the Yucatan region since during this time the Mexican weather temperatures can be unbearably hot and sticky and you might encounter rain showers during the day, even though they don't last more than a couple of hours if not minutes.
The photo above and the one right after this paragraph, for example, were taken with a only a 10 minute break one from the other.
Over all Mexico is a wonderful country. Only a few nations have such a strong and recognizable culture and identity as this fantastic country.
