2 Days Tour

The movie “2012” shows how Earth is destroyed by terrible cataclysms, and mentions the fact that this apocalyptic destruction was foreseen by the ancient Maya. This is of course a Hollywood exaggeration, but it is true that 2012 was associated to the thousand years old Guatemalan culture and its deep knowledge of time. December 21st 2012 is registered in the counts of Mayan Classic period as the end of an era and the beginning of a new time, although this is not all related to the destruction of the world (Read End of cycle).

We invite you to understand more about the lives of the Mayas and to have a better look at this ancient society for yourself – immerse in the Mayan World and visit the cities where the Mayas lived!

End of Cycle

Mayan spirituality is based on a worldview, or a way to regard the universe, which indicates that everything is connected and that we are one with the earth and the elements of nature. According to this vision of life, all human beings are accompanied since birth by energy, represented by an animal or natural force called a nahual. There are 20 nahuales, and each person has also a number, ranging from 1 to 13. The nahual plus the number determine the characters people. Contact with nature is done through the Mayan priest or aj’quij (literally “The one who counts time”). Priests are those who, after much preparation, are able to kindle the sacred fire which burned the offerings made to “Ajaw” (God) – and the elements of nature that make up all that exists.
