Visiting spectacular Mayan ruins: Chichén Itzá and Uxmal are two of the largest, most beautiful sites in the region.
Living like a wealthy hacendado: You can stay in a restored henequen (sisal) plantation-turned-hotel and delight in its old-world charm.
Browsing at fantastic craft markets: This region is known for its handmade hamacas (hammocks), piñatas, and other local handicrafts.
Swimming in pristine freshwater cenotes: These sinkholes, like portals to the underworld, are scattered throughout the inland landscape.
