Year of the Maya Brings Attention and Travel to the Maya Ruins

26 Jan

Since 2012 is synonymous with year of the Maya and the supposed end of the world, CNN has asked experts to debunk the myth and suggest notable Maya sites that enthusiasts and travelers should consider traveling to.

With attention being drawn to the Maya ruins, CNN asked Jeff Morgan, Executive Director of the Global Heritage Fund, to recommend the most notable Maya sites in Latin America to travel to. For those with a keen interest in the Maya culture, why not commemorate the beginning of a new era at the location of an ancient pyramid or temple? Three out of five of the recommended Maya sites are located in Mexico: Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Palenque.
