Day 1: Cancun – Ek Balam – Chichen Itza - Merida
Ek Balam, the place of the exclusive tourism. Ek Balam,
the archeological center with its fantastic discoveries
of the last decades, turned upside down the usual understanding
of the Mayan culture. Only the “Kremlin” is open to our view
while the rest of the city is resting under the jungle cover.
You will see Acropolis, Ball Game field, The Twin Buildings,
Observatory, and Temascal.
Chichen-Itza, a NEW WORLD WONDER, a representative of
Mayan - Tolteque culture. The magicians, scientists, and the
ball players – only the selected ones were able to access to
this special landscape of the white stone and of the “eyes” of
the earth – the underground lakes. Temples, which are considered
as belonging to the classical and post-classical periods did not
arrive to see Spanish as were abounded by its population because
of unknown reasons. Arch-astronomy was born in one of such cities.
Philosophy and history as one. View the Pyramid of Kukulkan, “the
feathered serpent”, of the ball games field, of the observatory etc.
Swimming in the cenote of Ik-Kil, “a place where the wind is being
born”, and the Yucatan most beautiful karsts lake. Arrival to Merida.
