I wish I was in Yucatan. It’s this time of year, when the wind whips cold and the snow blankets the earth that my mind and heart turn to Yucatan.
This is the time of year to head out of cold country and head to Yucatan. I yearn for those turquoise waters of the Riviera Maya, the heat of the Mayan ruins such as Chichen Itza, and the warm and friendly Mayan people.
The Riviera Maya is in Quintana Roo, a Mexican State in the Yucatan Peninsula. In the map of the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, you can see that Cancun is in the state of Quintana Roo.
