Got Mexico? Reasons Why I Keep Visiting

Within the last 10 months, I took hundreds of photos while visiting Mexico. These are just a few of my favorites, captioned with how I see Mexico and why I keep returning.


















Humble, human, hopeful.

    LOVE the pictures too. Mayapan is one of our favorite sites around. Understated yet beautiful. No ball court but pyramids you can still climb and beautiful vistas. Every time we visit we have a hard time noticing anyone else visiting along with us. Like out own little archaeological adventure. Did you stop by the cenotes of Cuzama while you were there? We look forward to more great posts. We are following all the Mexico Today folks happily!

      Hi there,

      Thanks for the nice comments on the photos. The pyramid is Mayapan and it’s located close to Merida, Yucatan. Thanks for reading!
