Chichen Itza, a World Heritage Site

The Pre-Hispanic City of Chichen-Itza is a large archaeological site built by the Maya civilization. It is located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, present-day Mexico. It is one of the most important examples of the Mayan-Toltec civilization in Yucatán.

Chichen Itza was a major regional center in the northern Maya lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.

Unesco has declared Chichen Itza a World heritage Site

Animals have good instincts for this sort of thing. If Michoacan is so special for them there must be a good reason.

Diving is now his new passion and he cavorts in three magical dive destinations in the Caribbean. There are many reasons why they call the Cayman Islands a divers dream: this is an entire nation dedicated to both banking and diving! Everything there is absolute: the visibility, the abundance of sea life and the drama of its underwater walls. At least 2 plane rides are necessary to find truly virgin reefs. The remote St Vincent and the Grenadines is such a place and home to a unique type of diving called “muck diving” which reveals the most amazing sea critters. Several of them have not yet been classified! Hurry before they get into every biology book. The unspoiled Tobago, because of its Atlantic currents meeting the Caribbean is known for the best and fastest drift diving. Flying underwater is a whole different kind of sport here. Sort of like skydiving but sideways. Strange and terrific to be tumbling through the water while fish life stares motionless. Hosted and narrated by Roberto Mitrotti less
