El Estado de Quintana Roo is a very interesting state. It offers so much, including the beautiful Riviera Maya. Rather then repeating myself, i've posted the information of the lovely small town of Tihosuco located within this state.

On the fourth day at Valladolid, I visited Tihosuco to see its unique museum about the Mayan Caste War. This museum shows the struggle that faced the Maya since the first Europeans arrived until the 1930's. The descendents of the Mayan fought hard against oppressive westerners with little success. In fact, from the mid 1800's to the early 1900's the Mayan rebels almost took charge of the Yucatan peninsula, however, they were stopped by the Yucatan forces, and later the Mexican forces. I learned an interesting historic point in this Museum. Similar to Texas, the Yucatan peninsula separated from Mexico in the 1800's and formed its own country. The shortly lived republic rejoined Mexico later that century.
