Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in 15 images

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in 15 images. This place was a great surprise for me. I was amazed by the crystal clear water and magnificent white sand. The Yucatan has the second largest reef in the world and we were lucky enough to enjoy it. On top of that, the Mexican locals are very friendly.  If you take time to speak to them, they will give you very useful tips. We stayed in very cheap guest houses to mid-range hotels and we were welcomed by the owners of these places. These pictures are here to inspire you to travel to the Yucatan Peninsula.

Coba Mayan Ruins
The ruins of Coba lie 44 km (approx. 27 mi) northwest of Tulum. Coba was estimated to have had some 50,000 inhabitants (and possibly significantly more) at its peak of civilization. Nohoch Mul Pyramid – A 42 meter tall pyramid (137 feet) is the main attraction. You need to climb it to see an amazing view.
Tulum
Tulum ruins
The main attraction in Tulum is the amazing ruins of this Mayan port. They are set high above the tantalising turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Admire the many enormous iguanas who reside amongst the ruins too! It’s easy to spend a couple of hours wandering around and admiring the views. Visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the crowds. It is also unforgivably hot and quite exposed here so take a sun hat and plenty of water.
