Yucatan

Overview

Eastern Mexico – the sun kissed Yucatan Peninsula juts out into the tropical waters of the Gulf, playing host to the country’s best beaches, sultry jungle and Mayan ruins.

The coastline is the limelight-grabbing star of Yucatan. Brilliant white powder extends for hundreds of undisturbed miles, bisecting regiments of palm trees and the deep blue of the Caribbean. Some of Mexico’s most exclusive luxury resorts dot the shore here.

But a star is nothing without a supporting cast, and Yucatan has an impressive ensemble. Inland steamy jungle cloaks pre-Hispanic Mayan ruins like the World Heritage site of Chichen Itza, a telling reminder of the former power Mayan Empire. Offshore, marine biosphere reserves – home to whale sharks, sea turtles and many species of multi-coloured tropical fish – offer world-class diving and snorkelling.

Away from the beach, Mayan cultural traditions are alive and well in modern day Yucatan and it’s common to find locals speaking Maya and dressing in traditional garb. Time-honoured Mayan holistic healing practices are incorporated in spa treatments at the luxury resorts.

Wildlife thrives in Yucatan. The state of Campeche is remarkably verdant, covered with the tropical forest of the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve. It’s home to many rare species of flora including endemic big cats like the jaguar and puma. The renowned Mayan archaeological site of Calakmul is located here. Closer to the coast, the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is where flocks of flamingos and nesting turtles hang out.
