Circumnavigating the Yucatan Peninsula in a small red hire car, staying in mid-price hotels. Visits to Tulum, Calakmul, Palenque, San Cristobal de La Casas, Campeche, Merida and Valladolid. Loads of Mayan Ruins, sleepy villages, cold beer and chicken fajitas - and an astonishing amount of roadkill.

I have been twice to the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza, both times making a stop on my way from Cancun to Merida. Like the Sacsayhuaman ruins in Peru, the mohairs in Easter Island, or Stonehenge in the UK, you simply wonder how they are able to construct them.

Cancún is unique in the world, at least in Latin America. The Tulum Mayan ruins are very near. But Chichen Itza is a most vivid testimony of the Mayan Empire, together with Tikal in Guatemala. And the city of Merida is a very pleasant city. Let’s explore this beautiful area.

This place was site to a large pyramid, razed after the arrival of the Spanish conquerors. Now the feel is more colonial than Maya.
