The ‘Yucatan’ is one of the three states that make up the Yucatan Peninsula. Located in the interior of the Peninsula and bordering the Gulf of Mexico, the cities and villages are part of a long history that defines this area of Mexico. Enjoy Mayan ruins, impressive architecure, small local Mayan villages, historical churches, and Yucatan food. The feel of the Yucatan is quite different from the Riviera Maya and Costa Maya. The cultural dimensions that define the Yucatan are far deeper than the beach towns so many visitors frequent. The Spanish and Maya influences that shaped this area are part of the landscape and experience..
Explore and experience more of Mexico in the Yucatan
What we love about the Peninsula is the proxity of locations. If you are looking to experience the Yucatan and are staying in the Riviera Maya, day trips to lcoal archeological sites are possible. If you want to get away from the beach and check out colonial cities, Valladolid, Rio Lagartos, Chemax, and more are just a few hours away. Alternatively, if the Yucatan is your homebase, the beaches of the Riviera Maya and Cancun are a few hours away. We do have the best of both worlds!
