Explore All the Great Things that the Yucatan Has to Offer

A stay in Merida is like a trip back in time. Its colonial architecture, busy markets, authentic restaurants and magical atmosphere will paint a vivid picture of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula as it once was.

The same can be said about the pastel town of Valladolid and the “Yellow City” of Izamal, whose charming buildings are inspired by the region’s colour palette. And if you want to venture way back in time, the ancient ruins of the mystical Mayan world are yours to discover!

Dive Into the Heart of the Ocean and Explore a Beautiful Underwater World

Cancun attracts partygoers and sun worshippers from all over, but looking beyond its legendary nightlife and world-famous beaches, you’ll see there’s more to this fabulous resort city. Gateway to thousands of spectacular cenotes, Cancun is a great base from which to access these natural sinkholes. The cooling multi-hued waters, hanging vines, stalactites and lush flora of these cave-like settings draw swimmers, divers and snorkelers seeking a unique underground and underwater experience.
