Yucatan travel guide
Travel tips

Yucatan is to the southeast of the Mexican Republic. Located in the central part of the Yucatan Peninsula, it is contiguous to the north with the Gulf of Mexico, to the southeast and east with Quintana Roo and to the west and southwest with Campeche
Yucatan is a land rich in attractions for the traveler, ranging from spectacular archaeological sites like Chichen Itzá - wonder of the modern world -, the imposing Uxmal, city of kings, to beautiful colonial cities with a deep historical legacy, such as: the Merida, White City; Izamal, Magical Town of Mexico, and the heiress of colonial times, Valladolid.
Its natural showcases and ecological reserves, like Celestún and Río Lagartos, which harbor more than 400 species of birds, contrast with the luxury and magnificence of its Haciendas, its high level spas and its restaurants of international luxury.
As an added value to the wonders of the state you can also enjoy a delicious gastronomy and places abundant in culture and history. It also has all the technical and human facilities to guarantee the success of your businesses and congresses.
Yucatan is the cradle of the Mayan culture and it has a historical legacy like few territories in the world. Around its outskirts rise majestic ceremonial centers, capital cities and beautiful carved stone buildings of perfect architecture.
Chichen Itzá, Uxmal, Ek Balam, Dzibilchaltún, among many others, are the legacy of one of the greatest civilizations of the world, the Mayan civilization, which reveals its millenarian archives, secrets, paths and wonders before the visitors who enter its dominions.
