Your Yucatan Vacations Adventure
We decided to set up this site because of our own experience traveling though the Yucatan with an older family member-someone who loves learning about new places and people, but who wasn't
looking for a rugged trek through the jungle.
It was the beginning of March. She had escaped the cold of a New England winter and come to spend a little time with us in Mexico to get the chill out of her bones. After a couple of days of relaxing by the beach, we packed our bags and set out to explore.
Check out our new six minute video "Images of Uxmal." A little history and memorable images of this amazing Post Classic Maya capital.
For quick reference, our site includes a number of useful pages to help you plan your next trip to the Yucatan.
First, a page filled with Cancun tourist information.
Second, a list of hotels in Cancun's Zona Hotelera offering all inclusive packages.
Third, a list of all hotels in the Cancun hotel zone.
Also, new pages on:
Hotels in Playa del Carmen,
Hotels in Cozumel,
Hotels, Boutique Hotels and Haciendas in Merida,
Useful travel accessories,
Medical FAQs, and
Retiring in Mexico.
Great Resource for Seniors!
We left Cancun
and headed for Merida
in the interior with a planned stop at Chichen Itza
, one of the "new" 7-wonders-of-the-world. But as we approached the exit, she told us she didn't want to stop.
Disappointed but knowing that we could always come back another time, we kept on driving. Still, it seemed strange for her to be so uninterested... after all, Chichen Itza is one of the things to see in Mexico.
It wasn't until later that we learned what was really going on. She believed that the only way to see Chichen Itza was to climb up and down a whole series of pyramids. And that was not something she was up for!
But Chichen Itza isn't a pyramid; it's a city, an extensive Mayan cultural and religious center laid out with broad avenues, temples, plazas, ball courts and many other intriguing and easily accessible things to see.
We missed seeing Chichen Itza, but we learned a valuable lesson. For the rest of that trip, my wife Alma and I found ways to make traveling easy and fun. Then we took what we learned and starting putting it all together here.
"Cancun, the Mayan Riviera and the Yucatan...for the rest of us"
Many of us are past the stage in life when para-sailing or sprinting up pyramids are the must-do activities for all Yucatan vacations.
Yucatan vacations are unlike any other in the Western Hemisphere. Where else can you find so many choices all so easily within reach. Less than thirty minutes form the airport you can be digging you toes into warm white sand. In two hours or less, you can be walking in the shadow of a Mayan temple.
And, with a few tips from a "seasoned traveler" who's been there and done it all before, you can enjoy your Yucatan Vacations adventure in style and comfort... without worry or stress.
Browse through the pages you see here. If there is something you'd like to see or something we've missed, please contact us using the form on the nav bar. We'll do our best to get back to you and/or post the content you're looking for within 24 to 48 hours.
We're glad you stopped by. We hope you will be too.
