Landscapes

An immense limestone plateau overlapping onto the Caribbean Sea, Yucatan offers its visitors many delights. Dream-like scenery of fine sand beaches, lying side by side, as long and straight as you could wish for, with calm, turquoise water.

Sites

The many different monuments in this region will take you on a journey of the ancient Mayan civilisation of Mesoamerica. Those with an adventurous spirit can discover the ruins left behind by the ancient Mayans, including the Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

They can also discover constructions sheltering frescoes, like the Temple of the Paintings in Coba, in the calm setting of these cities protected by the forest. In addition to trying to interpret these frescoes, visitors can go on a discovery of the Loltun Caves, a natural reservoir and a sacred place for the Mayans.
