To the rhythm of mariachis and traditional dancing, the film by Pierre Brouwers guides you across Yucatan, this Mexican state that juts out into the Caribbean sea. From the white sandy beaches of the Maya river to huge green expanses where the sites of Calakmul or Coba barely emerge from the forest, the cameras take you to not only the most prestigious Maya sites, but also other lesser known locations that from an archaeological perspective are just as interesting. Spectacular caves and rocks, mangroves and nature reserves form the décor in which one of America’s most fascinating civilizations developed and flourished.
Collection of all filmed birds I have seen during my trip to Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. Some other birds I have only photographed are not included to keep the length of the clip to some reasonable 16 minutes. Enjoy your time and if there are any misIDed birds, please leave me a comment.
In this tour through Merida, Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula we will discover the best this city has to offer, in particular, the Merida Cathedral & Paseo de Montejo. Those two landmarks of Merida are two of the reasons why this city is considered the cultural and intellectual hub of the peninsula.

More MEXICO: https://goo.gl/BzN0J8 ------------------ SUBSCRIBE! - http://bit.ly/1M4etCO ------------------ Merida Cathedral (Catedral de Merida) Constructed from the stones of the Mayan temples, this cathedral is the oldest on the mainland of the Americas (there is a cathedral in the Dominican Republic that is a couple of years older). The cathedral is huge, elegant with soaring stone ceilings. For a couple of pesos, you can get a guide to show you the features, or you can wander around on your own. A must see when visiting Merida. Merida Cathedral, known locally as Catedral de San Ildefonso, in Mexico is a sixteenth century cathedral built by Spanish colonialists. In fact, constructed from 1556 to 1598, Merida Cathedral was the first such cathedral to be built in the inland Americas. Not only was Merida Cathedral built on the site of the former Maya city of Tiho, it was also constructed from the stones of Maya pyramids. Paseo de Montejo Following the henequen boom that thrived in the region in the late nineteenth century, a group of ruling Yucatecans decided to launch a project to build a public promenade that "was worthy of Merida", and modernize the capital of the late nineteenth century. Today this is called Paseo de Montejo and was built between 1886 and 1905. It was inspired by the Champs Elysees in Paris and named after the founder of the city of Mérida, Francisco de Montejo and Leon, "El Mozo". In this beautiful Avenue you can find some of the most famous landmarks of the city such as the Twin Houses or Casa Camara, the imposing Canton Palace, the Peon del Minarete house, the Peon de Regil house, the Quinta Montes Molina, the monuments to Justo Sierra and Felipe Carrillo Puerto, and the famous Homeland Monument (Monumento a la Patria) which is one of the most important symbols of the city, conducted by the Colombian master Rómulo Rozo. Merida: Mérida, Mexico is the largest city in the Yucatan but it doesn’t carry a big-city vibe at all. It’s a delightful town and there are so many fun things to do in Merida. The city gives off almost more of a European feel yet is still very much Mexico. Here, colorful pastels blend with historic charm along Merida’s grid-like streets. You’ll always be only a few blocks away from a plaza (city square) where there is likely some event going on. The locals in Mérida are very friendly, the food is delicious, and the nightlife is often jamming. If planning a trip to Mérida, we would recommend trying to stay during the weekend, as the entire city tends to come out to play then. Yucatan: Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is one of the most popular tourism destinations. Major attractions include Cancun, the islands of Cozumel and Isla Mujeres, coral reefs, white-sand beaches, emerald-green waters, and perfect weather; all of them strong magnets for international travelers. The peninsula is also home to a large grouping of Mayan archeological sites; major ones include Chichen Itza, Coba, Edzna, Kabah, Tulum and Uxmal. Many areas of the peninsula are blanketed by a thick jungle, and in the southeast, tropical rain forests merge into the borders with Belize and Guatemala. --------------- • Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/delightfultravellers/ • Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/deltravellers • Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/delightfultravellers/?fref=ts • SnapChat: deltravellers • Website www.delightfultravellers.com MUSIC https://soundcloud.com/dandrum/taste-like
