Weekend In The Yucatan Peninsula

 During our visit at the Riviera Maya, Mexico during the Christmas holiday, we joined a day tour to visit the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This area is famous for the cenotes, underground water caves made of fresh spring water and the historical ancient pyramids built by the Mayans. Looking back now, this tour was not just a sightseeing tour of Mexico's best sights but told the story of Mexico's ancient history starting with the Mayans who built the pyramids 500 years AD at Chichen Itza based on their mathematical genius to predict days, nights, seasons, farming and harvest. The pyramid that they built is a national treasure. Then after the Mayans came the Spanish conquerors who colonised Mexico to Catholicism. Everywhere we visited around Mexico, there is always the statue of their patron, Our Lady of Guadalupe. Of course, visiting Mexico will not be complete without tasting their tequila at the Museo del Tequila inside the Hubiku. Our visit in Mexico exceeded our expectations. We did not expect to learn and see so much about the country, the people and their culture. We were able to enjoy their resort and beach at luxurious leisure but at the same time discover their country's history and meet local Mexicans who are welcoming and proud of their nation.

Cenotes are underground fresh water caves. 
Tequila tasting inside the Museo del Tequila. Do you know that cocoa was discovered in Mexico which led to the development of the chocolate? Not surprising, they have a Chocolate Tequila that tasted so delicious.
