Yucatan Travel Tips

A Mixture of Ancient and Modern at Yucatan Vacation Rentals

With its international airport at Cancun and excellent road system, the Yucatan Peninsula is rapidly becoming a well established vacation area. This area is now a great mixture of the ancient and modern. Yucatan condos are in the heart of everything needed for a great vacation; there are sun, sand, sea and plenty to do and explore. Yucatan's location on the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea means year-round great weather. It is one of those places that everyone should visit, at least once.

Fabulous Beaches and Fascinating History at Yucatan Vacation Houses

The major city of Cancun is well known as a laid-back destination, favored by those who love an active nightlife with plenty of restaurants, discos, and malls. Cozumel, the largest island here, is a haven for those who love nature. It is a paradise for snorkelers and scuba divers. The romantics will love its history as the home of the Goddess of Love and Fertility, Ixchel. It is also widely known as a great area for those on a budget. Tulum sits on the seafront facing the Caribbean and is famous for the walled Mayan fortress. These days, however, Tulum welcomes visitors to its beautiful beaches. The once sleepy coastal town of Playa del Carmen is still a hidden treasure. This is a great area for Yucatan vacation houses right on the beach. For those interested in how Mexico balances tourism with caring for the environment, take one of the many eco-tours and visit the nature reserves at Celestum, Sian Ka’an and Rio Lagartios.

The Capital city of the Yucatan Peninsula is Merida, at the northern end. It is an historic, tropical city and home to the oldest cathedral on the continent, dating from 1561. Medina is a great place to pick up souvenirs and gifts with local craftwork available, such as hammocks, Panama hats, fine gold jewelry, locally made pottery and more. As would be expected of a capital city, it has a wealth of great restaurants and excellent nightlife. Inland from here are the ruins of Uxmal, described as "too beautiful to behold." The ruins include the impressive Pyramid of the Magician, the Nunnery and the stunning five-acre Palace of the Governor. Between Merida and Cancun is the grandeur of the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza. Here, the El Castillo pyramid dominates with the remains of its ancient temple. Visitors here can enter the pyramid and the more energetic can even climb its historic steps.
