The Yucatán Peninsula


While many visitors flock to the Yucatán Peninsula to enjoy the beaches and resorts of Cancún, Playa del Carmen, and Riviera Maya, there are far more things to explore. From flamingos and whale sharks to tiny offshore islands and historical cities, the Yucatán Peninsula brims with culture, history and natural beauty.

The moment you arrive in this part of Mexico, you cannot escape the Maya. Though they’re well known for their ancient cities and ceremonial centers, their language, culture and traditions remain very much alive today. Chichén Itzá boasts many worthy companions in Uxmal, Edzná, Cobá, Calakmul, and several smaller ancient cities are still infused with a quiet, ancient spirit. But it’s not just the pre-Hispanic feel one senses in the air (more than 1,500 archaeological sites have been documented). You’ll also find colonial elements, traces of the Yucatán’s early-twentieth-century belle-époque, and even the latest innovations of the globalized world.

The Yucatán Peninsula welcomes more visitors than any other part of Mexico, due to its variety of attractions and offerings. This rich, historical mosaic is the stage where your fun begins. Archaeological sites, like world-famous Chichén Itzá, seventeenth-century convents and churches, splendid haciendas that began life as cattle ranches, late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century plantations with their grand old houses, and modern-day luxury hotels combine to form a powerful draw for explorers and beachgoers alike.

March through April yields a combination of warm temperatures and low rainfall. December through February is considered high season, with many East Coasters visiting to escape for the winter. May and June tend to be the second-best options; temperatures will be warmer, with rainfall also somewhat higher. The Yucatán Peninsula is hot country; always travel with a hat, sunblock, mosquito repellent, and water. EMBARK Beyond recommends a minimum of four nights to appreciate this destination, and even more time if enjoying more than one location within the peninsula.
