The Maya civilization was incredibly advanced. We all learned about their refined alphabet and cutting edge knowledge of astronomy and mathematics as kids in school. Well, I visited the ruins of Tulum over New Years, and was struck by how much I didn’t know. They were master traders and incredible artists.

I recently took a quick weekend trip to Cancún to celebrate my cousin’s wedding. It was absolutely breathtaking. If you’re visiting, I urge you to get up for the sunrise–even if you want to sleep in–it’s well worth it. Because of the white sands, the water reflects the sky so brilliantly.
