Mexico’s Riviera Maya

Mexico’s Mayan Riviera or Riviera Maya lies on the western edge of the Caribbean Sea. It was part of the Mayan Empire until the civilization fell in 900AD. I explored the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Tulum and Chichen Itza, including watching the sunrise over the Pyramid Kukulcan, peering over the Great Palace at the Caribbean Sea, and meeting a friendly iguana who was soaking up the sun in Tulum.
