A must you will enjoy so much. It is necessary to say that you need one day to visit this place. Chichen Itza is one of the most popular archaeologicalsites, notonlyonthe Yucatan Peninsula but probably worldwide, since its main building El Castillo is one of the New 7 World Wonders. It was declared a World Heritage in 1988 and added to the 7 World Wonders in 2007. We assure you, nobody leaves Chichen Itza without a sense of great respect and awe for the mathematical and scientific accomplishments of the Mayan ancestors. Onthis tour, you also visit a cenote and the colonial town Valladolid. During spring and fall equinox, light and shadow of the sun create the illusionof a serpent crouching down the pyramid’s steps. Another impressive building is the sophisticated observatory structure, testimonial to the Maya’s astronomical skills. No doubt, you will find yourself among a crowd of tourists, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
For all Beach lovers this is a must, be sure you add at least one day to expend on this unictown. After walking the ruins you can go to the Tulum hotel zone and spend the day on a Beach club with live music and excellent food and drinks. Tulum sure has the most spectacular scenery, with it spostcard perfect locationon a cliff upon the turquoise Caribbean Sea and one of the world’s most unique beaches at its feet. What used to be a sea port that control ledmari time commercefro Honduras to the Yucatan, is now the 3rd most visited archaeological site in Mexico, after Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza. There are colectivos that bring you to Tulum, for about 40 pesos oneway. They leave from the 2nd Street too, between 15th and 20th Street. Just listen to the guy shouting “Tulum!”. They also take you to the ruins, if you don’t want to take a tour.

This tiny island is so lovely you will want to be back soon! Isla Mujeres is the perfect destination for a day trip from Playa del Carmen. The laid back island has way more to offer than heavenly, Caribbean beaches with white, powdery sand, swaying palmtrees and crystal clearwater. Swim with the giants of the Sea, discover ancient Mayan history and a wild life refuge! The island gained its name “Island of the Women” because of the many carved images of women the Spanish found when they arrived there. This was because the island was a sanctuary for Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of the moon, fertility, medicine and happiness. The temple was built on the south tip of Isla Mujeres, which happensto be the most eastern point of Mexico. It also served as a lighthouse, to guide Mayan sea farers. A few hundred years later, the is land turned to be the perfect refugee for pirates and buccaneers. It’s said that they kept their women here while they went out plundering the Spanish ships, loaded with gold from Yucatan. Beginning in the middle of the 20th century Isla Mujeres already welcome dvisitors, long before Cancun was discovered by tourism. Since there was no ferry service yet, tourists would signal with flashing their car lights from a make shift dock, for local fishermen to pick them up.
