However perhaps the jewel in the crown, certainly as far as history lovers are concerned are the nearby remains of Mayan cities of Uxmal and Chichen Itza, the mighty structures towering above the ground have for generations inspired all who gaze upon them from tourists like ORIANA's passengers to film makers, writers and even video game developers and each take something different away from these awesome structures.
