Mexico Heritage

Mexico Heritage

» Mexico is most prominent to tourists for its many prehistoric ruins, popular beach resorts, generally warm-to-hot climate, and unique culture. Tourism in Mexico peaks during December and mid-summer. A one hour drive to the northeast of Ruta Puuc are the surviving remains of the city of Mayapan . This settlement was controlled by Chichen Itza to the east, now a large archaeological site with many interesting ruins.

 

» The central and southern parts of Mexico was host to several pre-Hispanic civilizations, with the most prominent being the Aztec, Mayan , and the Olmec. There are numerous tourist destinations where these ruins can be viewed. Along the gulf coast area in the state of Veracruz  are more archaeological sites, with the Olmec ceremonial center of Tres Zapotes, the ruins of the large Totonac city of Zempoala , and the ruins of El Tajín  with the Pyramid of the Niches. The city of Xalapa  contains the Museo de Antropología, a notable museum featuring a collection of massive Olmec head sculptures.

 

» Moving to the north, the central region about Mexico City contains several archeological sites. To the southwest are the massive ruins of Teotihuacán , including the Pyramid of the Sun and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl . To the southeast near the city of Cholula  is the Great Pyramid, visible from the city center. Just to the north of Cholula are the well-preserved ruins of Cacaxtla city.
