Mayan culture pictures
Interior views of this stunning church.
We had a private guide during our tour of the Mayan ruins of Tonina. He is a rancher in the area and had an amazing sense of humour. This was him posing for us looking out of a window of the temple. He laughed and said “Mayan Bar” “Mayan Bar” taking our order for a Cerveza or two.
Tonina is the highest Mayan Temple in Mexico and Central America because it is built on a hill. It makes for a spectacular view.
The Grounds are two square km but most of the complex has yet to be excavated. Other than the main temple and surrounding buildings, most of the ancient city is waiting beneath the jungle to be discovered.
We look forward to going back to Mexico in the future to spend several months exploring. This country is massive and there is so much to see and do. We only had a taste of Chiapas during our two days of sightseeing. It was just enough to wet the appetite to come back sooner rather than later.
