Overnighting in Cancun

Overnighting in Cancun

Anyone looking to holiday in the Yucatan and flying in from Europe will arrive at Cancun airport from the late afternoon onwards, too late to begin the journey into the region’s hinterland.

Campeche Hotels

Located on the south-western coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, the colonial era city of Campeche derived its name from the previous Mayan settlement, Ah Kin Pech, which translates as ‘place of snakes and ticks’.


Located midway between Merida & Campeche, Uxmal is, for many visitors to the Yucatan, their favourite Mayan site.

Day Of The Dead

Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos in Spanish) is a uniquely Mexican holiday that is celebrated across the country.


It may be one of the Yucatan’s smallest, and least architecturally impressive Mayan sites, but Tulum sure pulls in the crowds. Wonder why?

Becan Mayan Ruins

Located in the sparsely populated south of the Yucatan Peninsula, very few visitors make it to the small Mayan site of Becan; fewer still would visit were it not for its relative proximity to the far larger and better knows ruins at Calakmul.
