While it's always been a popular holiday and beach destination, 2012 is set to become a stellar tourism year for the country, thanks to a little Mayan mythology predicting either a) an apocalyptic ending to the world as we know it or b) a spiritual rebirth and the beginning of a new era for mankind. Either way, the Mexican tourism board is all over this ancient worldwide mythology like a fat kid on a three-cheese enchilada and is showcasing the country's Mayan heritage to its advantage. For daredevils who like to flirt with destiny, consider booking a trip to the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza which is said to be the physical embodiment of the Mayan calendar, and be there on Dec. 21, the day the world is supposed to end. If we don't go up in a ball of fire or drown in a biblical flood, you'll still come out of the whole thing with a lovely tan and a sunny Mexican vacation.
