Yucatan Peninsula

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Yucatan Peninsula
A trip to Yucatan Peninsula takes visitors to the southeastern section of Mexico, an area that housed the legendary Maya civilization before the arrival of the Spanish conquerors in the 16th century. Much of the region's population traces its origins back to this old culture, and in many of the smaller settlements residents continue to speak the Maya language in addition to Spanish. Yucatan Peninsula tourism thrives largely thanks to the popularity of Cancun, a modern resort town on the so-called "Mayan Riviera." Away from the white-sand coastline, this part of Mexico treats visitors to some of the finest examples of Mayan pyramids and temples, offering a glimpse into the continent's pre-Hispanic history.
