The Maya Civilization is one of the most prominent ancient cultures with a distinct style, complex religion and rich mythology. The Maya achieved great accomplishments in the fields of mathematics, astrology and architecture. 

Their nation extended through an area known as Mesoamerica, which includes the Mexican states of Tabasco, Chiapas, Campeche, Yucatán and Quintana Roo as well as Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. The legacy of the great Maya nation can seen in their ruins that remain scattered throughout these countries.
