Mexico - Yucatan Peninsula (Chapter)
This is the Yucatán Peninsula chapter from Lonely Planet’s Mexico guidebook.
With charming colonial cities, world-famous Mayan ruins, thumping nightlife centers, sleepy backcountry villages, talcum-powder beaches leading onto crystal turquoise waters and more dive sites than you could possibly cram into one vacation, the Yucatán is one sweet destination.
