In Yucatán, you can combine history, culture, romance, gastronomy, undiscovered beach locations and the unique opportunity to be submerged in a community of the living Maya people.
From memorable local flavours to internationally recognised must-see sites, the state of Yucatán stands out with a vibrancy of its own. Whether it’s the deep crystal-blue of a seemingly bottomless cenote, the bold green of lush jungle encroaching on ancient Mayan archeological sites, or the eye-catching pop of pink worn by the resident flamingos, this is a colourful area of Mexico well-worth discovering ... this is why Yucatán Turismo says, “Yucatán is full of colour!”
Mérida is the capital city of Yucatán and the safest city in México. This is the starting point for your trip at Yucatán and it stands out because of its wide variety of cultural and artistic attractions, its colonial downtown with architectural european influence.
Food is one of the main reasons you should visit Yucatán. From the traditional cuisine with endemic ingredients to the contemporary gastronomy you'll be delight with a mix of flavours and colours.
