Chichen Itza and Copan are ideal destinations
People who want to take an adventure holiday to learn about a fascinating time in history should consider taking an adventure travel tour around Central America, to look into the past of the Mayans.
The ancient civilisation of Maya spread through Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as other Central American countries from about 2,000 BC.
An adventure travel tour taking in the top Mayan sights may pass through the ancient city of Copan - located in modern-day Honduras - and should inevitably include a visit to Chichen Itza.
Chichen Itza is a pyramid located in Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, which is one of the most important ancient Mayan sites left in the world. It was named as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.
A notable thing for which the Mayan civilisation is known is the only written language that we know to have existed in the Americas before Christopher Columbus's arrival in the late 15th century.
