Yucatan Peninsula Explorer

Discover Spanish colonial heritage and Mayan masterpieces set in the jungle including Chichén Itzá and Uxmal, from the Caribbean Sea to the Gulf of Mexico

The Yucatán Peninsula is home to some of the finest archaeological sites in the Americas including the world famous Chichén Itzá, Uxmal and the lesser explored sites of Edzná and Ek Balam. These remains are set amongst dense jungle covering much of the peninsula and contrasts well with the attractive Spanish colonial architecture of Campeche, Mérida, Valladolid, and Izamal.

Ease of access with direct flights from the UK to Cancún allow for a fascinating insight into this historical, charming, colourful region bursting with culture. The Yucatán offers a selection of the best beaches in Mexico, with the opportunity to extend your stay at the Mayan Riviera in either Cancún or Playa del Carmen.
