What to do in the Yucatan Peninsula

If you're a lover of history then Mexico is steeped in it. Head to the Yucutan Peninsula and explore the wonders of a lost civilisation. Chichen Itza is now an UNESCO world heritage site and was built by the Mayans way back in the 7th Century. Alternatively enjoy the stunning view at Coba as the Mayans first did where you can climb Mexico's highest Pyramid. Or how about a visit to the archaeological site at Tulum. Constructed on the edge of a steep cliff, walk through these Mayan ruins and gaze into the turquoise waters below. It really is a spellbinding experience and you will be amazed at how clear the water is!

There is plenty of activities to be book such as ATV riding, snorkelling, swim with the turtles, speed boat rides and so much more!

When it comes to entertainment then the popular tourist destinations never sleep. Places such as Cancun and Playa Del Carmen are awash with shops, bars restaurants and nightclubs. Here you can shop, eat and party the night away without a care in the world. Alternatively if you prefer your entertainment a little more 'tranquillo' then how about pampering yourself with a spa and wellness session. Most of the hotels offer this type of service and you can get everything from massages and steam baths to seaweed wraps and even chocolate baths.

What's the weather like?

The Yucatan Peninsula is hot all the year round, the temperatures throughout the year don't vary much although they do have mainly the 2 seasons; wet and dry.

The wet season generally runs from about June through to October and then dry season starts from November and goes through to May.
