Fun facts about Mexico

Riviera Maya is relatively new to the tourism block. If you visited the area in 1950’s, you wouldn’t have found this development

Pok-ta-pok: In ancient times, the Mayans created a sacred ball game similar to basketball called ‘Pok-ta-pok’. Games were played in a large stone amphitheater as a religious ritual and the object of the games were to knock a rubber ball through a stone ring, using only the hips, knees, and elbows.

This was a game where a player could definitely ‘lose his head’ over, because it was the winning team who was routinely sacrificed to the gods.

By the way, football is the main sport in Mexico. Baseball is also a big sport in the country, and is the main sport in the Yucatan península.

Lucha libre is not the main sport in México, but it is one of the best acknowledged sports from México internationally.



With the shadow of the pandemic looming over our heads for the past year,
it is important to be up to date about Covid-19 situation in each region.
