Fine sand beaches, impressive remains of the lost Mayan culture and picturesque colonial cities are awaiting you on the Yucatan peninsula. The most famous holiday destination on Mexico's Caribbean coast is the sophisticated city of Cancun. Playa del Carmen and Tulum, with its oceanside Mayan temple, are also favourites. But year-round swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing are not all that Yucatan has to offer. The colonial cities of Merida and Campeche and the Mayan temples of Chichén Itzá and Uxmal provide opportunities for unforgettable excursions as well.
