Yucatán (also Yucatan) is a location Lara visits in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

It is one of the many states in Mexico.[1]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Main article: Cozumel

In the beginning of Shadow of the Tomb Raider Lara visits Cozumel, an Island on the coast of Yucátan. She meets Jonah here and follows Dr. Dominguez, a leader of Trinity to the dig site where she finds the Key of Chak Chel.



This Dagger is said to open the Silver Box of Ix Chel; taking it from its resting place causes the beginning of the Maya apocalypse

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

The game Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is set completely in Yucatán, since it's an important location in the storyline:

According to Aztec myth, the region we call the Yucatan is an ancient battleground where the human followers of Totec, the Guardian of Light, once waged a catastrophic war against the demonic forces of Xolotl, the Keeper of Darkness.

It is written that Xolotl called upon the power of an artifact known as the Mirror of Smoke to summon forth a horde of unspeakable horrors from the Abyss.
Totec's warriors were slaughtered in the battle that followed, but Totec himself survived. He found a way to turn the Mirror's power back against the evil god. Xolotl was imprisoned within the mirror, and the descendants of Totec went on to forge a mighty empire that lasted until the arrival of the conquistadors.

As for what happened to the Mirror of Smoke, the ancient texts are vague. Some say it was hidden in a secret place, that the mirror was lost forever. But if there's one thing I've learned it's that nothing is lost forever.
