Cheap tickets to tour Mexico’s Mayan Heritage

Many visitors on cheap flights to Mexico want to see more of the country than sunny beaches and cookie cutter resorts. If you’d like to experience more of a cultural immersion in Mexico, check out some of the Yucatan Peninsula’s Mayan heritage sites. Seeing these amazing structures and the indigenous cultures that still survive around them will transport you back thousands of years to the height of this mysterious civilization. Some of these restored archaeological wonders can be found deep in the jungle, while others are right out by the beachfront. Check out airline tickets and cheap flights deals today to see the best Mayan sites in Mexico.

Mayans are considered to be the most advanced of the early Mesoamerican cultures and Mayan architecture was incredibly sophisticated for its age. Mayan culture in the region has been traced to around 1500 BC. Mayan civilization in the Yucatan Peninsula flourished during the Classic Period from about 300 AD to 900 AD. Some of the features of Mayan settlements that can still be seen today are the pyramid-like temples with corbel vaults and elaborate decorations. Human forms and gods are commonly portrayed in the murals, stucco and ceramics that have been found in the Mayan Yucatan. You might get to spend money saved on cheap tickets on handcrafted ceramics decorated in classic Mayan patterns.

New Mayan ruins in the Yucatan are discovered every year, and some are currently undergoing restoration today. A good number of these sites were never found by the Spanish conquistadors as they are deep in the Mexican jungle. If you’d like to see the restoration process up close and personal after arriving on flights to Mexico, visit Ek Balam, built during the Mayan Classic Period. Ek Balam’s many temples and palaces are actively being restored and promise to be one of the Yucatan’s most extensive Mayan heritage sites. Chichen Itza is, by far, the most visited Mayan site on the Yucatan. It has 18 separate structures that have been impressively restored, of the several hundred that once stood here. Some are from the Mayan Classic Period and some are from the Maya-Toltec Period. Tulum, easy to access by flights to the peninsula and just over 60 miles south of Cancun, was once a strategic city for the Mayan Empire. It is known for its city walls and remnants of beautiful frescoes. Tulum is also right on a picturesque beach. Palenque, on the other hand, will bring you deep into Mexico’s mountains and jungles. You’ll love its Temple of the Cross, Temple of the Sun, and Temple of Inscriptions.
