An archaeological expedition found two ancient Mayan cities, including a monster mouth doorway, in the southeastern corner of the Mexican state of Campeche.
Take a look at the monster mouth photo on the right. Please notice the eyes the ancient Maya sculpted into the rock. They’re just above and on either side of the doorway. The doorway represents the mouth of the monster and will take you into a dark cave-like room.
Where is the Yucatan Peninsula? On the map of Mexico, below, you can see that Mexico looks like a hand, and the Yucatan Peninsula looks like a thumb. The thumb sticks out into the Caribbean Sea.
Interestingly, the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula extends close to both Cuba and Florida.
Who are the Maya? Where do the Maya live?
During a recorded speech in a bookstore, Carol Chapman, Director/Producer of the Yucatan travel movie, Yucatan Travel: Cancun to Chichen Itza, answers the question: Who are the Maya. In addition, she shows where the Maya live on a Yucatan Peninsula Map.
