December saw a spike in visitor numbers in our Mexican market, as tourists made for marvellous Mayan ruins.
These historic sites were of particular interest for Mayan enthusiasts as the traditional local calendar marked the important date of 21 December 2012 and a new 144,000 day period called a baktun began.
Contrary to popular belief, most Mayans did not think the world would end on this date, instead they simply saw it as a moment for change and renewal, as a new epoch began.
