Anyone interested in Mayan art and history should check out the current exhibition by renowned local artist, Marcelo Jiménez Santos, at the Cozumel Island Museum.

On show are a range of paintings depicting Mayan sea journeys as part of events for this year's Sacred Mayan Canoe Crossing.

The paintings use acrylic paint on recycled paper, which imitates parchment, and they tell stories about Mayan gods and mortals making epic voyages in canoes and other fascinating scenes.
