Two Weeks in the Yucatan Peninsula
There is so much more to the Yucatán Peninsula than the Riviera Maya. If you have two weeks to explore, you're in for a treat: refreshing cenotes (sinkholes), scuba diving with whale sharks, white-sand beaches either deserted or full of life (take your pick), breathtaking Maya ruins, beautiful colonial towns, nightlife for every taste and whim, delicious cuisine, biospheres and reserves, and majestic haciendas all await you in the Yucatán Peninsula.

The Place of the Red Corn

Large arrow left

I did not see any red corn at the Maya site named Chacchoben as its translated named would imply. What I did see were many well restored temples and structures and what I did not see was another tourist. I find that smaller archaeological sites do not have to be as spectacular as the well known sites with throngs of visitors in order to be enjoyed equally. When you have a location to yourself to explore with nothing but the chorus of the jungle around you, you can let your imagination wander and experience the location more intimately. Chacchoben offers that kind of experience and is a short drive away from the city of Chetumal.
