10. The Bufadora
The Bufadora is a cave among the rocks at sea level, which enters the water stream at high tide, when the cave is filled with water, that it is expelled by the air inside the cave, driving and seawater as a great geyser at altitudes up to about 20 meters. The force is such that it produces a peculiar sound, like that of a wild beast.
This marine geyser is considered the second most in northern Ecuador, after Hawaii. Others exist in Australia, Tahiti and one in Japan that is artificial.
9. Avenue of the Dead
Now go to the Mexican past, the ruins of Teotihuacan, where we find the “Avenue of the dead.” This is the main route of this extinct city, whose structures are thought to have housed the bodies of the dignitaries.
Along the street are the most important buildings for churches, palaces and houses of characters height. There are, besides the two great pyramids, the Priest House, the Palace of Quetzalpapalotl (Quetzalmariposa), the Palace of the Jaguars, the structure of feathered conches, the temple of Quetzalcoatl, and the citadel.
We go from one place in Mexico to another, in this case the municipality of Villa de Santiago Nuevo Leon, near Monterrey. Specifically, we ventured into the Horsetail Falls, which takes its name from its resemblance to the tail of horses. The area is a major center of ecotourism, and the waterfall itself one of the most beautiful in Mexico.
7. Copper Canyon in Chihuahua
Now we travel to Chihuahua, where we see one of the biggest accidents of nature, and therefore represents one of the highest beauty and breathtaking natural surroundings of Mexico, I mean the Copper Canyon. This is one of the systems of the longest and deepest canyons in the world with 60 000 km of mountains, of which almost half the surface of the cliffs.
In this powerful environment emphasizes the encounter with the Urique Canyon, the deepest in the state and Mexico, with 1879 meters.
I can count in Cancun do not know already, the epicenter of Mexican tourism, with beaches-stopping anyone and surrounded by a beautiful natural environment. The problem I see in the area is the mass of tourists, but well, now I’d be there.
5. Natural arch of Cabo San Lucas
El Arco de Cabo San Lucas is a rock formation on the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas, also known as Arc Land’s End. It is the place where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet.
There are several legends about the strange and dangerous this place can be found on this blog.
4. Xel Ha
Now let Quintana Roo, in this case to Xel Ha, considered the largest natural aquarium in the world, where they live in a quiet area 70 species of freshwater sea.
Xel-Ha is one of the few places in the world where we see two phenomena simultaneously: the thermocline and halocline. Dense and warm water of the sea that can not be immediately mixed with fresh water and lower density of freshwater canals, produces a visual effect similar to a mirage. You can distinguish a layer of liquid on the surface like oil on water, but it is actually fresh water floating on salt, which is of greater density.
This is one of the most beautiful natural environments of Mexico, and in turn one of its main attractions.
In this case I am referring to the ancient walled city of Tulum, and not the city that bears the same name and is located in the vicinity, both in the state of Quintana Roo. This is one of the most important Mayan ruins and one of the major tourist centers of the Maya Rieves. The main building is in the walled area called “El Castillo” served the function of light, so that Maya sailors and goods could cross the reef that shields the area without getting bogged
2. Chichen Itza
This is one of the major archaeological sites in Mexico and instead declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988. It is an important remnant of the Mayan civilization, where we can find others with the imposing Pyramid of Kukulcan.
1. The Gully Canyon
Located on the outskirts of Tuxtla Gutierrez, capital of Chiapas, this canyon is a beautiful and historic cliff a thousand feet high, starting the same from the Grijalva River, the second largest river in Mexico.
During the Spanish conquest of the region, ethnicity Chiapa (or Chiapa de Corso, in his own language) conducted a mass suicide by throwing himself from the top to the bottom of the canyon to avoid being subject to the conqueror thus also believe achieve freedom in the underworld. The importance and cultural symbolism of this canyon to the people of Chiapas are so large that its shape is the base coat of arms of the state of Chiapas
