Placed gracefully on the Yucatan peninsula, Yucatan State encapsulates the essence of Mexican tourism and beauty at its finest. It borders Campeche to the southwest and the Gulf of Mexico towards the north. Yucatan hosts a plethora of adventures, experiences and scenic pleasures that attend to tastes of all kinds of visitors. It boasts a magical amalgamation of deep-rooted history and dynamic modernity. Yucatan is the ideal place for history and art buffs. It is one of the most historically enriched and significant areas in the world that sports ancient Maya ruins, vibrant cultural houses, historic landmarks that date back to the period of Spanish Colonialism and museums that take one to strolling through the ages. The most renowned amongst these is the Chichen Itza that has been declared one of the seven great wonders of the world as of 2007. This huge landmark is an intriguing mesh of pyramids and platforms that embodies the religious and political centre of the former Mayan inhabitants. With ample white-sand beaches, turquoise lagoons and extensive coasts peppered with stunning exotic islands, the aquatic vibe in Yucatan is unparalleled to any other in the world. A brief ferry ride from the buzzing, once affluent fishing village of Playa Del Carmen will take you to Isla Cozumel, the largest Mexican island, which is the epitome of serenity and the perfect destination for deep sea diving. Yucatan bridges the barrier with wildlife at Isla Holbox and Akumal where you can swim alongside the majestic white whale sharks and go snorkeling with a multitude of turtles respectively. The cenotes, or flooded caves, of Dos Ojos, Ik Kil, and Azul amongst numerous others impart enigma to the entire peninsula with their clear waters and sublime enclosures.
