Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club knows  many travelers are hoping to find the perfect vacation destination that will please every member of their family. For all those who have never visited the city of Cancun before, Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club shares that the area is home to many examples of famous Mayan ruins. All those who are interested on how this former culture used to live during the era they were around will love exploring these historical sites. Here are some of the best ones found in the area every visitor should make time to explore.

  • Chichen Itza: The famous El Castillo pyramid dominates the center of this Mayan ruin, and is perhaps one of the most iconic images associated with Cancun. Be sure to bring along a camera during the excursion in order to capture plenty of material for the scrapbook. This is the largest and the most popular of all the Mayan ruin sites in the area.
  • Tulum: One of the last cities inhabited by the Mayans is a must for those vacationing in Mexico. This formerly walled city is a great place to see a lot of examples of the beautiful stone cliffs surrounding the beautiful turquoise water surrounding the sandy shores of the beach. It’s very mesmerizing.
  • Coba: Coba is another unique example of a former ancient Mayan city, and is known for being the home to the largest network of stone causeways found in the ancient Mayan world. Engravings found on these detail their daily life, and are something rare to be seen. Coba is also home to a pyramid (known as the Ancient pyramid) that does differ from Chichen Itza’s Kukulkan version.
