Yucatán & Mundo Maya

Yucatán & Mundo Maya.jpg

This large peninsula bordered by the Riviera Maya and encompassing three states that once formed a large part of the mighty Mayan empire embodies a little of everything that a Mexico holiday has to offer.

The Yucatán Peninsula is a wonderful mix of ancient ruins, rainforests, colonial cities and natural wonders. Delve into ancient Mayan culture through its modern-day descendants, who are still influenced by them in their dress, language, religion and cuisine. The cultivation of crops such as chicle and henequen, used to make rope, led to the construction of beautiful haciendas, now turned into stunning boutique hotels. Stroll among the old streets and baroque architecture of colonial-era towns such as Merida and Campeche. Explore not just the more famous Mayan sites of Uxmal and Chichen Itza but those lesser known sites close to the Belizean border, such as Kohunlich. Bird-watchers will love the Biosphere Reserve at Celestun, especially for its large colony of flamingos.
