Yucatan

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Yucatan Peninsula  /  Yucatan
Historic Sites Nature Sightseeing
A trip to Yucatan reveals a place that caters to the more tranquil of travelers interested in seeing Mexico away from big crowds and modern resorts. A good alternative for anyone disinclined to visit Cancun or Cabo San Lucas, this part of the country boasts numerous historical and natural attractions, including pristine mangrove forests, quaint colonial-era towns, and a string of unspoiled beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Most visitors begin their tour of Yucatan in Merida, the under-the-radar state capital considered one of Mexico's safest and architecturally significant cities. From there, you're just a drive away from hundreds of Mayan ruins, proof that organized humans lived here as long ago as 800 BCE. Plan your trip to Yucatan and other Mexico destinations using our handy Mexico trip itinerary maker.
