Unearth the Hidden Treasures of the Yucatán

From Chichén Itzá to Uxmal to the Ruta Puuc and beyond, the Yucatán holds some of history’s greatest stories and most beautiful places to visit.

History, tradition, and beauty are everywhere you look in the Yucatán. Colonial villages and historic towns, like “Magical Pueblo” of Izamal (the Yellow City), Valladolid, and Campeche, greet guests with sunset-hued colonial architecture and traditional Maya and Yucatecan foods.

Along with stunning, complex Mayan ruins that whisper stories of the ancient past, the Yucatán is decorated with extravagant cathedrals, homes, and plazas, as well as sculpture-like remains of grand haciendas, originally designed as henequen plantations in the late 18th century.

Some of the haciendas have gone into ruin, turning the arid spaces otherworldly, as the sun shines through the cracks and geckos flit about on the limestone walls. Yet many have been lovingly restored as museums or hotels, honoring their full grandeur and opulence.

After a few days of exploring the Yucatán’s rich culture and history, indulge in a relaxing visit to the secluded white beaches of the Gulf Coast. Or go below ground and explore some cenotes, freshwater underground rivers that open to turquoise, mystical swimming holes that beg you to swim in them. Back above ground, natural wonder continues as flora and fauna flourish in the Yucatán’s natural ecological preserves.
