A little more about the Yucatan Peninsula
A holiday to The Yucatan Peninsula wouldn't be complete without discovering the realm of the Maya at the spectacular Chichen Itza, the seventh wonder of the modern world. Other archaeological sites strewn throughout the area include the equally impressive Uxmal, Kabah, Edzna and Tulum.
Spanish influence is still evident in the walled city of Campeche with San Miguel Fort proudly guarding the city. Also steeped in history is the handsome colonial city of Merida with many narrow cobbled streets, intimate shady plazas and the beautiful henequen haciendas.
Travelling throughout the Yucatan area a network of underground rivers and lagoons await exploration through innumerable limestone sinkholes. These fascinating cenotes are perfect for swimming, snorkelling and diving. The wetlands provide excellent bird watching opportunities, and the Caribbean coastline fringed with beautiful beaches provides a variety of water sports.
