El Cielo’s Top 5 places to see in Mexico!

#1: National Museum of Anthropology

Not only is it the largest and most visited museum in Mexico, there’s history for everyone – The museum covers a range of history from significativo archaeological and anthropological artifacts. Our favorito is the Stone of the sun! (also known as the Aztec calendar stone). 

 

Tip : Located on Paseo De La Reforma, one of the most popular strips in Mexico city where the Angel of Independence is located! Make sure to get a shot of the gold-painted angel.

 

#2 : Chichén Itzá

Chichén Itzá is a world-famous complex of Mayan ruins on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. A massive step pyramid known as El Castillo! It is in an ancient city, which thrived from around 600 A.D. to the 1200s. Graphic stone carvings survive at structures like the ball court, Temple of the Warriors and the Wall of the Skulls. Nightly sound-and-light shows illuminate the buildings’ sophisticated geometry. No wonder it is one the new seven wonders of the world! 

El Cielo Tip : On the way there, stop over at one of the magical cenotes for a dip to cool off.
