Ancient cities await your exploration: Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, Toltec and Teotihuacan. The ruins of hundreds of these mysterious cities dot the landscape of Mexico. When you visit one of these sites, you will channel your own inner Indiana Jones and imagine both the discovery of these ruins and wonder of what they must have been like when they were inhabited so long ago. While there are similarities between the sites, each is unique and worth your time to explore. Climb the stepped pyramids, walk into the ancient buildings and marvel at the artistic and the gruesome interposed in the stonework.

Cenotes are sinkholes that give access to underground water. They take many forms, from open swimming holes to underground rivers flowing through caverns. Mexico has thousands of cenotes and hundreds of miles of underground passages. Many are reserved for exploratory divers but there are still hundreds of options for experiencing them yourselves, whether via diving, snorkeling or just taking a swim. They are truly unique and worthy of being a focus of your travel dollars.
