WHERE TO GO IN Mexico

Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza is a spectacular Mayan site and was recently voted as one of the new 7 wonders of the world.  The giant stepped pyramid of Kukulkan dominates the ancient city and from its heights you can contemplate structures such as the Warrior’s Temple,the moon observatory Caracol or the Giant Ball Court, complete with grandstand and stone hoops, where prisoners played for their lives.

Holbox Island

Located to the northwest of Cancun, Holbox Island is separated from the mainland coast of Mexico by a shallow lagoon, which gives sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds and creatures.

Merida

Merida is the capital of the Yucatan and depicts much of the splendour of Colonial Mexico containing many buildings in varying states of repair.  This vibrant city was founded by the conquistadores in 1542 and built directly on top of an existing Mayan city.  Its impressive cathedral is the oldest in Latin America, completed in 1559. 

Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya boasts some of the best beaches in Central America with hundreds of miles of wide beaches and inviting shallow turquoise waters. The soft, powder sand is a brilliant white and the clarity of vision in the warm and clear Caribbean is superb. 

Tulum

The setting of Tulum is simply stunning with a compact group of Maya-Toltec temples perched on coastal cliffs above the turquoise Caribbean Sea.  Tulum was built in the 12thcentury and these were troubled times in the Mayan world as reflected by its defensive wall and watchtower, rare in other sites.  Despite the beautiful sunrises from here, each doorway faces west and the site is dedicated to the worship of the Falling God or Setting Sun.  

Uxmal

Expansive in its design with majestic palaces and temple pyramids, Uxmal is renowned for its superb sculptures and design.  Long geometrical friezes rank among the most splendid examples of ancient American art.  The incredible Pyramid of the Magician and the beautiful Governor’s Palace are two of the finest examples of Mayan art anywhere.Considered by many archaeologists as one of the finest examples of an ancient Mayan city.
