Impressions of my Vlog
The Mayan ruins of Palenque are known for a burial chamber with a huge Mayan coffin under a temple, as we know it from Egypt. Unfortunately, only a replica is exhibited in the museum.
The city Mérida is located on the Yucatán peninsula. In the great Maya World Museum we learned about the history of the Maya and according to the Maya calendar I am the creator of my destiny. At the nearby Maya ruins of Dzibilchaltún we swam in the Cenote Xlacah. Cenotes are limestone holes and the Mayans use them as water reservoirs.
Chichén Itzá is one of the most important Mayan ruins and one of the 7 New Wonders of the World.
The city of Valladolid was our starting point for Chichén Itzá. Furthermore, we were at the two almost closed cenotes Xkeken and Samulá. For little money, we used the chance to drive with ATV over hill and dale.
At the city of Tulum are Mayan ruins directly on the sea and we were at the beach “Playa Santa Fe”. We also took the opportunity to dive in cenotes. A breathtaking experience to see the sparkling sun rays under water. At The Pit Cenote we dived from fresh water to salt water and the transition at about 10 meters was very blurry. The Dos Ojos Cenote reminded me of an underwater cave. We dived through narrow passageways and saw many stalactites, fossils, a dead iguana and bats in a cave.
The island Isla Mujeres is close to Cancún and we relaxed at the Nomads Hostel for a few days.
