Tulum is one of the places to visit in Riviera Maya. It is Mexico’s boho-chic beach paradise. It’s a sultry combination of ancient Mayan ruins, gorgeous beaches and laid-back parties under the stars.
Merida is the capital of the Yucatan state and another popular stop for travellers visiting Mexico thanks to its charming combination of colourful buildings, unique culture – not to mention some ridiculously good food.
Two hours’ drive from Merida. Like so many other destinations in the Yucatan region, Campeche is beautiful and incredibly well preserved. So much so that it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Nine hours’ drive from Campeche. The region still has a large indigenous population and Tzotzil and Maya culture make their presence known in San Cristobal and its surrounds.
