We travelled all over the Yucatan peninsula (down the bottom of Mexico where it borders the rest of Central America) and had a great time.
We even managed, with a complete lack of any planning and a good helping of sheer fluke, managed to visit the main Mayan city - Chichen Itza - on 21st March - the Spring Equinox. As you can see from the photo, the sun casts the shadow of a serpent on the Great Pyramid for only a short time, only on that day.
Here are a couple o snaps - our camera broke half way through the trip - turns out that sand and digital cameras don't really mix - who knew?
