Mexico's Yucatan peninsula is the site of major clashes between the indigenous Mayan people and the Spanish colonialists and the attractions here reflect it.
The Roberts learn the Mayan history at the huge pyramid complex of Chichen-Itza where they research the acoustics on a Mayan ball court, climb the pyramids and study a colony of leaf-cutter ants.
Then it's on to soak in the culture at Spanish enclaves like Izamal, Valladolid and Merida where Mayan traditional dances take place in centuries old colonial squares. Explore lively markets and take horse drawn carriages through the colonial centers.
