NEW YEAR’S CELEBRATION IN MEXICO
If you think that if it doesn’t snow in Mexico there’s no New Year, you’re terribly mistaken! Its celebration on sunny shores is just as amazing as it is in a snow-covered Europe, for example. You can even see a real Christmas tree in the center of the city! How cool is that? On New Year’s Eve people gather together with their families and friends, have a great festive meal, talk while drinking some champagne, hug and kiss as soon as they hear the clock strike midnight. After that they go outside, watch millions of colorful sparkles from fireworks and bonfires and then dance on the streets to live music until the sun comes up. However, it wouldn’t be true Mexico if it didn’t have any special rituals on New Year’s Eve.

THE OUTSTANDING YUCATAN
What makes the Yucatan Peninsula so special and attractive for tourists? Definitely one of the reasons is its unique culture as it has been formed by the Mayas and a rich Spanish heritage. Then again, from another point of view, it could be pointed out that the sea was the primary means of trade between the Yucatan and the remainder of Mexico's territories up to around the middle of the twentieth century. As a result, the culinary customs and tastes of the Yucatan are considered to be the most reflective of Mexico as a whole.

The sacred cenote of Chichen Itza
Cenotes played an important role in the life of the ancient Maya. Not only were they the source of fresh water for local population, but also holy places where believers would come to address the spirits allegedly inhabiting them. According to the Maya, they concealed an entrance to the country of the gods called Xibalba guarded by rain god Chaac. That’s why each underground river around Merida, Cancun and Playa del Carmen has its own history. And that of the Sacred Cenote in Chichen Itza is probably the most thrilling – and most sinister…
