History and beaches, art and cuisine—Yucatán is full of traditional flavors and modern sensibilities. True Yucatán means ancient pyramids and Mayan ruins, meetups with artists and craftspeople, the finest local ingredients, historic haciendas in the jungle, and access to some of the world's best diving and snorkeling. Go deep in one of Mexico's most rewarding regions, exploring the vibrant towns and cultural sites from Mérida to Chichén Ítza, Celestún and Uxmal to Campeche.
Travel through a jungle of trees to a cavernous cenote for an unforgettable swim or dive in its surreal, crystal-clear fresh waters. Meet local artists in their home studios, explore the mighty ruins of Chichén Ítza and walk the colonial streets of Merida. Savor a a traditional meal that’s been roasting all day, Yucatán-style, in a pit near ancient Mayan pyramids where iguanas bask in the sun. Feel the fresh sea breeze on a perfect beach, and linger over a star-lit cocktail in a 300-year-old hacienda. Yucatán is simply the best.
Our Yucatán is for families looking to get away from it all, and for travelers who appreciate distinctive cuisine, mesmerizing art and bountiful beauty.
Yucatán is a year-round destination, with temperatures rarely below 75F. Winter (Dec - Apr) is our favorite season, when clear skies and calm seas make for the best diving and fishing.
More beach time and relaxation, or dial up the adventure: cenote and reef dives, 4WD excursions, a deep foodie journey. The choice is yours.
Footsteps from colonial city scenes, or lost amidst gorgeous forest, our boutique hotels make you feel right at home in the Yucatán's most stunning locations
It's the perfect set-up in colonial Mérida, in an intimate, award-winning spot lovingly restored from a former painter’s studio, with beamed ceilings and endless charm. Chocum trees line pathways, and their resin adds a pinkish hue to the walls in the same timeless manner Mayan architects favored. Contemporary comfort floods the unique designs. There's also an on-site spa, pool and incredible Yucatecan restaurant.
Arriving to this rural hacienda wonderland will stop you in your tracks. It's on the outskirts of Campeche, with green gardens and candle-lit walkways leading to this stunning hacienda complex built in 1700. Dark-wood, colonial furnishings and century-old black-and-white tile floors adorn the high-ceiling rooms. A stray pillar juts from the inviting pool. Is this real? Yes, and it’s your perfect base for exploring nearby Mayan sites.
