O
nce in the Mexican Caribbean you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Mayan culture. The Mayans mapped the heavens and created the calendar we still use today. They built huge cities with massive temples and cultural centers. A trip to one or more of these ancient sites is a must.

An overview of each ruin area is presented below.

Chichén Itzá among the most important Mayan archeological sites in the Yucatan. It is an easy morning's drive, about two hours inland on good roads from your vacation home in Soliman Bay. Nine hundred years ago this cultural center of the Toltec-Maya civilization was at its peak. To walk among the expansive ruins of Chichén Itzá is to step back in time.

Coba is a city surrounded by jungle. It contains 5 lakes and numerous white stone roads or "sacbes". Five groups of temples, pyramids and observatories form this remarkable site, (see Coba ball court, second picture from left above) just 34 miles from Soliman Bay.

Ek Balam The ancient city of Ek Balam (“Black Jaguar”), like Chichén Itzá, is about two hours from Soliman bay. It is inland from Tulum, about 20 minutes north of Valladolid. Because it is a recent excavation, facilities are sparse, but not missing. There is one restroom. You’ll want to bring along your own food and water. Though the major structures such as the pyramid are not as well preserved as some in the region, the state of preservation seen in its plaster friezes is astonishing.

Muyil - Coming soon.

Tulum is the only Mayan city on the coast of the Caribbean, (Photo on left.) It is spectacularly poised on a cliff overlooking the sea. The view is simply breathtaking. Located just 4 miles from Soliman Bay.

Xel Ha - Coming soon.

We hope you'll plan to visit all these ancient sites and discover for yourself the mystery of the Maya.
