Find unique things to do in Yucatan Peninsula in the video below. It includes such off the tourist track places as Ek Balam, with its magnificent carvings in the face of a pyramid that you can climb. You’ll also find Valladolid, where you can get wonderful local Yucatecan food. Plus, you’ll love Izamal, the yellow-painted town with its cathedral, home of the Black Christ or Cristo Negro. And, of course, there’s the usual Yucatan tourist hotspots of Tulum, Chichen Itza, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Coba, and Akumal.
It turns out that the Tulum condo is not safe. It’s not that tourists need fear violent activity in the Tulum area. It’s that they need to be aware of faulty appliances.
Wouldn’t you know it: Tulum is NOT safe. No sooner do I (yesterday) post a blog article saying that Tulum is a safe tourist destination in the Yucatan, than a news feed announces the mysterious death of a family in Tulum!
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.
