Yucatan Travel Highlights:

  • Mérida – The vibrant capital of Yucatán state, Merida is a colonial city replete with elegant buildings that were once the city homes of wealthy hacienda owners. Now boasting a burgeoning art scene, boutique hotels and fine cuisine, Mérida is consistently voted as one of the nicest cities in Mexico.
  • Campeche – The colorful capital of the state of Campeche, the city itself boasts many restored buildings and colonial structures that helped it to become a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. Once a port town fearful of pirate attacks the city is surrounded by a thick fortress.
  • Mayan Archaeological Zones – Home to some of the most finely restored Mayan cities in world, the Yucatán Peninsula also contains ruins still covered in dense jungle, waiting to reveal new hidden mysteries. Those unearthed offer a glimpse into the ancient Mayan world as you walk in the footsteps of civilizations past.
  • Valladolid – The Magical Villlage of Valladolid  is a small, colorful town with a laidback, sleepy feel. From colonial era churches and architecture to natural wonders such as cenotes, Valladolid is a great place to stop.
  • Haciendas – Scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula, haciendas offer a glimpse of what were once operational henequen plantations in the grand style and tradition of the period. Many have now converted into living museums and luxury hotels.
