A definite must see if you are staying south of Cancun in the Tulum, Akumal, Puerto Aventuras area. The entrance fee is very modest and well worth it. These ruins are smaller that you would see at Chichen Itza, but do they do not disappoint if you are not willing to take the all day trip to Chichen Itza. Upon entering, I was told that there are not tripods allowed. I was still able to take my DSLR, so this panorama is actually one of my first handheld panoramas!
North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
