Kukulkan is a Mayan culture deity whose name in Spanish is translated as Feathered Serpent, one of the most important deities of Mesoamerica that is related to the wind and water.

Many researchers throughout history have come to say that it is the same God of the Aztec culture, called Quetzalcoatl, whose meaning in Spanish is the same as Kukulkan.

Chichén Itzá, one of the new wonders of the world, has as its main structure El Castillo (Spanish for The Castle), a pyramid erected especially for Kukulkanwhere you can admire its “descent” during the winter and summer solstices, signaling the end of the agricultural and political cycle of the Mayans.

Precisely the most important avenue in Cancun, which is where the Hotel Zone is located, is called the Kukulkan Boulevard.

It is currently one of the most important works of the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico and contains one of the most significant archaeological collections of the Mayan culture.

In the museum you can find pieces from archeological sites like ChichénItzá, Palenque and other Mayan ruins. Without a doubt, it is one of the attractions in the destination which you cannot miss.
