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 "Observatory" at Chichen Itza

Large arrow left

Rather than post the typical picture of the Temple of Kukulkan I thought I would post this picture of El Caracol or the "observatory" at Chichen Itza. You will notice from the picture there are few people present...if you go to Chichen Itza try to time your visit very early in the morning before the tour groups from Cancun or Merida arrive ...or very late in the afternoon. This picture was near sunset in December and most visitors had left the site for the day...it was pleasant to walk around without the crowds and it was slightly cooler.
