With 106 municipalities, countless cenotes, beaches, archaeological sites, and haciendas, Yucatán boasts one of the world’s densest cultural landscapes thanks to its ancient and contemporary Maya population. Accept that you’ll never be able to explore it all, but pack in as much as possible with our monthly recommendations for a week-long adventure. Sift through the archives on our website to mix and match your perfect trip!


Let’s go to Celestún, it’s time to see the mangroves, the springs and of course the flamingos, and a variety of seafood restaurants on the beach. Back in Mérida at 9 pm enjoy the “Vaquería” (regional dance) at the Plaza Grande.


Today will be a cultural Maya day, go to the archaeological site of Dzibilchaltún, check out the on-site museum. At night have dinner at Guillermina in Casa T’hò, located on the beautiful Paseo de Montejo.


We are going to visit the Convent Route today, where you will see unique towns, full of color and history. Plus you can enjoy the gastronomy that you will find at the towns. The last town on the route is the most important one, do you know which one is?


Take the free guided tour at 9:30 am, departing from Palacio Municipal in Plaza Grande, then after the tour walk around the Centro streets. Remember that at 9 pm you can watch the Yucatecan Serenade in Santa Lucía park.


Shopping day! Go to some of the fabulous boutiques in Mérida: Casa T’hó, ¡El Estudio!, Kukul Boutik, 100% México and others. You will end up thirsty and hungry, so head over to La Linda Mérida.


A “must” stop in Yucatán is Izamal, go to the convent, to the artisan workshops, the stores, and of course to have a delicious lunch. Back in Mérida have a unique evening at the rooftop bar of Rosas & Xocolate.


In the morning do some shopping at “Mérida en Domingo” in the Plaza Grande, after that drive north and go around that part of the city. Have dinner at Radio Station Pizza at Av. García Lavín.
