The Yucatan Peninsula lies between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. It is made up of the states Quintana Roo and Yucatan. I spent a week exploring this region including the coastal city of Playa del Carmen, the colonial town of Valladolid, as well as several smaller villages in the Yucatan Jungle and archaeological sites such as Chichen Itza. Here is a list of experiences and things that I learned, saw, and felt during my week on the peninsula.
We snorkeled, swam with pigs, explored a cave, went sailing, cliff –jumped into a lagoon, and bathed in natural baths. With the help of a tour guide who showed us where all his favorite spots are, we experienced so much in such a short amount of time.
