A Tulum cave diver explained that the Mayan architecture should not be refered to as Mayan ruins. If you visit the pyramids in Tulum, they are well preserved and albeit not in use, they are also not in ruins. The Mayan civilization may have collapsed over 1,000 years ago, but the culture and people remain. Over 750,000 people in Mexico continue to speak Maya and modern Mayans weave traditional practices and beliefs into contemporary life-styles. This is why the end of the Mayan Calendar, scheduled for 2012, is an important event in Tulum. This event takes on a unique meaning for each individual, but there is a general shared understanding of its connection to the state of our relationship with the environment we live in.”
