You often hear of the extinction or disappearance of the Maya culture. LDS Cancun Tours has designed this tour to help you understand the truth about this mysterious episode in the history of a magnificent civilization, and it can be witnessed in one of the main areas of the encounter between the first Spanish conquerors and the Maya: Tulum
On this tour, you also learn about the Maya religion today, as manifested through the fascinating rituals, teachings, and myths that have been an intricate part of their lives since ancient times. You hear this information from the mouths of the current Maya priests as they speak in their own temple.
