Mexico is a wonderful place for the lovers of culture, traditions and customs, and in your vacation to Cancun you will get to know a little bit more about the Mayan Culture: their art, dance and architecture.
The Mayan civilization spread from the southern Mexican states down to the northern Central American nations including of course the state of Quintana Roo.
Some people comment that Cancun was created much later and has no Mayan history, but they would be wrong.
Shopping for souvenirs in Cancun is easy and fun with flea markets in abundance depicting Mayan symbols, figures and drawings.
A lot of Cancun hotels offer a Mexican theme evening and a couple of local companies offer a complete show full of Mayan dancing and culture.
When we think of Mayan Architecture we of course think of pyramids.
There are Cancun excursions to the local Mayan ruins such as Tulum and Chichen Itza but did you know that Cancun has ancient Mayan ruins as well?
