Our second excursion was to the Mayan ruins at Chacchoben. This was my first visit to a Mayan ruins site, and I was very excited. Incidentally, I had just seen the latest Indiana Jones movie, so we had been joking about crystal skulls and aliens all week......
After docking at Costa Maya, we took an hour bus ride to the site. Diana was our tour guide, and she was fantastic. She knew the site inside and out and had a great deal of information to share.
This is a map showing where the Mayans lived in Mexico and Central America.
Several photos showing some of the structures at the site.
