Sign of the Times: Maya 2012 in Yucatan, Mexico
I saw this billboard on a trip to the Riviera Maya last year. Now the date is upon us: December 21, 2012 is an important date for the Maya; it marks the end of the Long Count, a 5,125-year cycle of the Maya calendar, and the world’s transition into a new era. Some believe this transition will be peaceful. Though there are many strange, non-Maya related storylines and arguments going on about 2012, there's one thing everyone can agree on: Traveling to the Mundo Maya -- Mexico
, Guatemala, Belize
, El Salvador, Honduras -- in the year 2012 (and beyond) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
