The Mayan Mystery of 12/21/12

By December 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Playacar-Mayan-Temple

Ancient Mayans predicted the end of the world on 12/21/12.

Today's Mayans predict a busy holiday season in their age-old home. The Mayan kingdom is better known today as urban Cancun; the Riviera Maya beach paradise; and scuba-happy Belize.

Cancun-Maya-Museum

Cancun's brand-new Maya Museum channels this ancient world with incredible artifacts and "you are there" 3-D holographic recreations.

All winter, Cancun and the Riviera Maya will celebrate Mayan culture and cosmology with special events.

Closer to home, the riveting show Maya.1012, Lords of Time runs through 1/13/13 at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia.
