At the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, two beaches meet. One is Playa del Amor, roughly translated as Love Beach. The other is Playa del Divorcio, translated as Divorce Beach. Between the two stands an organic archway carved out by the Pacific Ocean’s relentless winds and tenacious waves.
Plaza de las Tres Culturas is the intersection of 100 years of architecture in one place. Pre-Hispanic culture is represented by Tlatelolco, the archaeological ruins of the biggest market in all the Americas. In 1609, the conquering Spanish built Templo de Santiago at the site during the colonial period using materials from the ruins. The church includes the baptismal font of the first indigenous Catholic saint, Juan Diego. The third era is represented by the Tlatelolco Cultural Center, which has temporary and permanent exhibition halls
Cascadas de Agua Azul and the Misol-Ha waterfall are located near the town of Palenque in the state of Chiapas in southwestern Mexico. The waterfalls are tucked away in mountainous jungles and can be reached from the Ocosingo-Palenque Road or on an organized tour from nearby Palenque or San Cristobal de las Casas. Agua Azul is a series of cascading waterfalls and tiny turquoise pools formed over limestone “steps” that make for stunning scenery.
