THaving some sorbet on Montejo Avenue, discovering the grandness of Chichen Itza or trying the best cochinina pibil in the country are only some of the attractions of a state that has become famous over its independent spirit. Yucatec people, inheritors of the Maya culture, are so different from the rest of the country that their towns and cities also reflect this particular vision.
Before the large tourist developments of Cancun and the Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo was a single thing: jungle that meets the Caribbean Sea. And still today, this stretch that welcomes travelers from the whole world continues to be fascinating because of the same fundamental reason: the turquoise sea. The Meso-American coral reef begins in front of its coasts, which is the second largest in the world after Australia’s Great Barrier. From Cancun to Bacalar, the diversity in options is huge: large resorts to small boutique hotels, although the attraction is always the same, the sea.
