Beautiful! I really enjoyed seeing the Mayan ruins when I was in Mexico. A fascinating culture.

Terrific captures as always! Brought back some memories -- I lived in San Miguel de Allende for over a year and traveled quite a bit. Hope your weekend is off to a great start, JM! Enjoy!

This looks not unlike the Crystal River/Homossassa area here in central Florida. The green water is a bit different, though as are probably the critters living in that water. :-)

These folks were pretty smart, their real weakness being their belief that their gods would come from the East...
God bless you!

It's amazing that those canals remain from that fascinating culture.

Andrea said...

It is awesome that old ancient canals like these are not yet changed by civilization. Even the entrance of the canals is quite mysterious-looking! Have you sensed Quetzalcoatl?

Dominic Doherty said...

Wow... awesome travel photos... It's been years since I've last seen water such as this

The boat looks very different, but otherwise this canal, with the mangroves, looks much like Palawan in the Philippines.
