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. Visitors to Cancun are fortunate
that some of the most spectacular Maya ruins are within easy reach.
