The Ancient Maya performed religious ceremonies and even human sacrifices at these sacred wells. They believed the cenotes to be the passage ways between the world of the living and the...

Posted by Kay Walten in Enviroment,Riviera Maya Photos

Coatimundi Live on the Yucatan Peninsula

Don't be surprised if you come across one, or a pack, of these guys while visiting the Riviera Maya. Coatimundi are cousins of the raccoon and they are everywhere on the Yucatan Peninsula. They make their home in the jungle, but are known to forage the occasional garbage can. Coatimundi are generally docile, but best to keep your distance because they have long claws and sharp teeth they won't hesitate to use if they feel threatened. Although, feel free to take photos as they don't seem to...
