yucatan

Mystify yourself in the Land of Wonders, the state of Yucatan, Mexico.  Yucatan is in the center of the Yucatan Peninsula, which includes the states of Quintana Roo and Campeche.  A magical place with natural wonders that will invigorate your senses and astound the mind, the Yucatan is where the ancient and modern join in a complementary existence.  One example are the Mayan ruins, most notably the spectacular Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza with its Kukulkan Pyramid (El Castillo), named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007; Uxmal, with The Adivino (Pyramid of the Dwarf), a stepped pyramid with atypical oval-shaped layers; and Ek Balam, with The Acropolis and its large carving of a jaguar's mouth and inscriptions of Mayan hieroglyphics.  Contrast these with the more modern sailing Regattas and windsurfing competitions in the nearby Gulf of Mexico, or the culinary delights of Yucatan cuisine, a unique combination of Mayan, Spanish, Caribbean, and Middle Eastern flavors, influenced by ancient international trade.  You must visit one of the 3,000 cenotes (cave-like sinkholes with natural wells) in the area, Mayan sacred places, where you can swim, snorkel, or scuba dive in fresh crystal clear blue water.  Explore the wonders of the Yucatan today!
