We don’t know a lot
about what happened to

the ancient Maya. Their
mysterious ruins attract

the occasional ocelot. At
Tulum, nonchalant tourists

flock, slather sun tan lotion,
peruse guidebooks. It’s been

centuries since Spanish ships
announced the first apocalypse.

Archaeologists now delve
into the Mayan collapse,

while New Age gurus await
the year 2012.
