Being a lover of adrenaline and a big fan of traveling, I didn’t think twice when someone suggested a visit to a theme park where the Mayan Culture was the highlight.
Mayá, Lost Mayan Kingdom is a theme park in Mahahual were you can find the beauty of fun and culture in every corner; my first visit was so fast that I spent the weekend there (NO REGRETS!) I want to talk to you about the amazing duality within Mayá: Air & water, ziplines, and water slides.
A few places have captivated me like Mayá, not only because of its awesome slides but for the story behind every ride. Inspired by Mayan Gods like Chaac, Hunab Kú, and more, the intensity of the water slides reflect the power of each character.
If darkness is your thing and you’re feeling brave, I recommend Balam, a tubed water slide with a 40 ft height. If you want to run away from “la Xtabay” go to her slide, which is the one at the highest point of the Great Pyramid (78 ft height).
Even though I am a big adrenaline fan, ziplines are a big challenge to me, because flying seems like a movie experience, but I felt super safe at Mayá. The Toucan is six levels and The Eagle is three…so I started with the “easy one” and then went all the way to Kukulcán. This last one is a jungle zip coaster with fun turns above the beautiful green areas of Mahahual.
Bonus: Time to relax!
After all the rush from the slides & ziplines, I decided to relax. Mayá has 3 cool spots for that: Jaguar River, Poza del Árbol, and Cascada Azul, this last one was my favorite since is hidden and exclusive.
I hope this post helps you plan your visit to Mayá and also enjoy the Paradise that Mahahual is. In case you are coming soon, book here! If you are Mexican or Belizean you will get a special discount by showing an official ID.
