This panorama was taken OVER the Xcaret Cemetery
Xcaret is a Maya civilization archaeological site located on the Caribbean coastline of the Yucatán Peninsula, in the modern-day state of Quintana Roo in Mexico. The site was occupied by the pre-Columbian Maya and functioned as a port for navigation and an important Maya trading center.
Xcaret means "small inlet" in Mayan. Its name comes from its situation next to a small inlet that in the past served as a strategic location for navigation and commerce for the Maya. The original name of the site was p'ole', from the root p'ol that means "merchandise" or "deal of merchants", which gives an idea of the economical relevance of the site.
The Cemetery and Bridge to Paradise is a unique structure representing the Gregorian calendar. The structure simulates a hill in the form of a dome-like cone with seven levels representing the days of the week and 365 tombs on the outside depicting the days in the year. Lastly, at the main entrance, there is a stairway with 52 steps that represent the weeks in the year.
