Explore the Mayan coast, since ancient times the original civilizations such as the Mayan culture sailed from Honduras to Veracruz, passing through all the Mayan ports on the beaches of Mexico.
Protected by the reef, its development in the art of navigation and fishing was excellent. Among the most famous Mayan ports we can find the ancient city and archaeological site of Tulum, distinguished internationally for its architecture and landscape, built on the rocks on the beach with a impressive view of the sea.
