Yucatan Mexico Vacation Destinations
There are few places in the world that offer as many opportunities for a romantic getaway as Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.
Check into Hotel Secreto, one of Mexico's new luxurious boutique hotels and voted by Conde Nast Traveler magazine as one of the top 50 hotels in the world.
Relax into an infinity pool overlooking the crystalline Caribbean sea. Have dinner under the stars and sample some of the best of contemporary Mexican cuisine in one Isla's chic and intimate, award-winning restaurants.
Explore the "Lost" Cities of the Maya
When you're ready for a little adventure, Yucatan Mexico vacation destinations offer something for everyone from the casual tourist to Indiana Jones.
Two hours inland from Cancun is Chichen Itza, once the thriving capitol of a Mayan empire with 50,000 inhabitants, now a tourist-friendly UNESCO World Heritage site. You can make it a day trip if you like, but better to spend the night at Hacienda Chichen Resort and Spa, a Spanish colonial hacienda (right on the grounds of the archeological site) that has been fully restored and now pampers guests with old world charm and four star service.
Relax in Stately Colonial Merida
After your visit to Chichen Itza, continue on across the peninsula to the colonial city of Merida, the capitol of the modern state of Yucatan. Merida is one of the original cities founded by the Spanish when they arrived in the early 1500s.
Today the city blends old world charm with the vibrancy of an important regional city and university town. Stroll through the shaded streets in the center, take in a performance by traditional dancers in the town square, ride in a horse drawn carriage down the fashionable Paseo de Montejo amid the palaces of the Yucatan's 19th century gilded age.
In Yucatan Mexico vacation destinations you will discover the richness and diversity of land where Europe first encountered the New World. Here the past lives on and you can enjoy all the romance of history and legend at never-before-heard-of prices.
It's a romantic getaway that will leave you with a lifetime of wonderful memories.
