Immerse In Mayan History And Walk With The Ancients

By Ron Williams_

The Yucatan Peninsula is an area of rich history, ecological splendor and epic wonders. There is so much to this vicinity that makes it distinct from the remainder of Mexico. Up until the 1950′s the Yucatan remained more or less inaccessible from the remainder of the nation that was finally linked by rail along with later a highway in the 1960′s. Before that point the Yucatan’s tie to the outside world was via sea and consisted predominantly of trade with Caribbean islands, the US and Europe. In 1972 the plans of a resort community were introduced focused on what’s at present Cancun, Mexico which is becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations around the world!

It is obviously the natural beauty of this location that draws so many visitors in the direction of Yucatan; aided by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean to the south, the calm gulf waters to the north and plush jungles and underground rivers in between, it’s absolutely no wonder people from throughout the world flock to this tropical paradise! Nature, Mayan way of life and hospitality bring people back year after year. The powder white seashores, Mayan ruins, cenotes (underground rivers) and diverse wildlife are a few of the regions highlights.

While you can find many different hotel options today; including a multitude of mega resorts that offer all-inclusive style vacations; they are typically captive in nature and do little to reveal the abundant beauty and culture of the region! Based on personal experiences and years of feedback, we’ve come to believe your best option for getting a real flavor of the area is by discovering the smaller Yucatan hotels and resorts. These places aren’t your typical mega resorts, but they do offer many of the equivalent amenities and beyond that, a freedom of opportunity to really explore the land and find adventure. Sadly, the misperception concerning the security of the area appears to promote the all-inclusive options versus getting out into the culture. Any full-time resident of Tulum that you may come across will personally testify to the safe travels in this area.

We?ve heard from hundreds of people and have visited most of the best small resorts on the Yucatan and have never for one moment felt unsafe. In fact you’ll feel more at home in one of these smaller boutique hotels than anything you would experience at a big all-inclusive resort. The enchantment and kindness found off the beaten Yucatan path create stories that can last a lifetime and the folks you come across in these places will feel more like kin than one can imagine. You may be flabbergasted on return visits that they will still remember your names!

The Yucatan is much more than Cancun mega resorts, expensive Playa del Carmen hotels and spring break crowds. Watch the turtles lay eggs on the beach from your Tulum beach cabana, swim with the whale sharks and watch a mesmerizing sunset in one of many luxurious Holbox Island hotels. Embark out, walk outside the box and find your Mexico, come across your Yucatan, an area where fun, adventure and once in a lifetime experiences are made. See you in Mexico!
