Trace the history of the Maya tribe at Mexico
Mexico is known for its rich history, unique tasting food, and stunning stretches of white sandy beaches. Regardless of travel preferences, there are activities suitable for tourists of all types and ages, especially in Playa del Carmen, one of the must-visit places upon arrival in Mexico.
Playa del Carmen is one of the cities that still retains evidence of Maya culture for tourists. This includes the ancient site of Chichen Itza, a partial site of the pyramid of the god Kukulcan, the supreme Maya god who is believed to be the creator of mankind. This pyramid was considered the last and the greatest of the Maya Empire. There is also Tulum, an archaeological site on the beach that was built facing the Caribbean Sea. Just a 30-minute drive from Playa del Carmen, it offers spectacular views of the Caribbean. You can find many souvenir shops along the way generally offering Mexican-style handicrafts. There are also fruit stalls selling papayas, bananas, and oranges that are larger than the ones sold in Asia.
After ancient monument sightseeing activities, don't miss out on a trip to Cozumel, a tiny island off the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Its beauty lies within the sea itself. The main attraction there is diving and taking in the hidden wonders within the Yucatan Peninsula. The specialty of this activity is that tourists can choose the depth of their dives. It is said that if you dive to a depth of a thousand meters, you will get a glimpse of the moray eel and hammerhead sharks that live in caves under the sea. There is also a training facility on the island, dolphin shows for tourists to appreciate their cuteness and sea turtles around the beach.
You may also find local performances at various locations in the area around Playa del Carmen. As you wander through the town, enjoy entertaining shows by performers dressed in traditional costumes. If you continue onto the Riviera Maya, you'll find a beach that stretches for 125 kilometers, passing through small, quiet villages to Playa del Carmen, making it an ideal place to relax for those who love nature and peace. Moreover, between Playa del Carmen and Tulum lies a picturesque beach called Xpu Ha, bustling with people and colorful sun tents.
