Next on the list is the Puerta del Mar – gated community on the serene beaches of the state.

Then we will take a journey to Edzná – a Maya archaeological site The word Edzná comes from “House of the Itzás”, which has led Archaeologists to believe that this Mayan city was influenced by the family Itzá long before they founded Chichen Itzá
