Yucatan Peninsula Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences


The Yucatan Peninsula contains the most popular beach resort of Cancun, a fairly recently man-made resort dating back to 1970 before which it did not exist as such and is Mexico’s showcase resort. It is naturally endowed with turquoise waters and powdery white sandy beaches.

It is also home to many excellent archaeological sites of the Mayan civilization. These include Chichen Itza, the largest and most restored site and also the most visited. It is a day trip from Cancun 160 kilometres/100 miles away. It is also an hour and a half away from Merida, the capital of Yucatan. The Pyramid of Kukulcan or El Castillo is the most famous landmark of Chichen Itza. This was a temple-pyramid dedicated to the Feathered Serpent God, Kukulcan. Another important Mayan site is Uxmal located 62 kilometres/40 miles south of Mérida. Its buildings are noted for their size and decoration. Thanks to its good state of preservation, it is one of the few Mayan cities where the visitor can get a good idea of how the entire ceremonial centre looked in ancient times.

Merida is a city of contrasts. You will find elegant hotels, restaurants and malls plus a large central market and numerous small shops all around the main plaza. Merida has a rich cultural life which also reflects its diversity. Many free concerts, performances and other events are held daily. The city's ambiance is colonial and the climate is tropical. From Merida, it is easy to take day trips to a vast array of destinations including archaeological sites.
