The historic state of Yucatan

The sun-soaked state of Yucatan in Mexico is full of sandy beaches, colonial towns and old Mayan ruins. Located on the northern end of the Yucatan Peninsula, you'll find fun-filled activities ranging from waterfront sports on the Gulf of Mexico to daytrips inland in search of historic sites dating back 100s of years. When it comes time to select your Yucatan vacation rental, you'll find plenty of options along the coast near the city of Progreso, and in the historic capital of Merida, many equipped with refreshing pools to cool off in on the typically warm, sunny days.

Making a splash in Yucatan

No trip to Mexico would be complete without spending some time enjoying the beautiful coastline, and Yucatan's location on the Gulf of Mexico means lots of pretty, white-sand beaches with views over the sparkling waters. Whether you prefer to lounge out on the warm sand, soaking up the rays while sipping on a cold, fruity beverage, or to grab a kiteboard for an exhilarating excursion out on the waves, you'll find plenty of options here. The town of Progreso on the coast also serves as a cruise port, so there are lots of choices for tours and excursions around Yucatan.

Step back in time in Yucatan

Mexico is filled with historic Mayan ruins, and Yucatan state is a great place to check them out, with one of the most popular pyramid-filled spots located here. Chichen Itza, a complex of Mayan structures dating back nearly 1,000 years, can be visited on day trips to the central part on the peninsula. The site is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered one of the new 7 Wonders of the World. The whole family will love exploring the archaeological ruins, where you can see all sorts of pyramids, temples and ball courts, where ancient games were played.

Enjoying the warmth of Yucatan year-round

Thanks to its tropical climate, Yucatan stays nice and warm all year long, though the rainy season of summer can bring intense humidity that will keep you close to the beaches or pool of your Yucatan vacation rental at all times. Winter is the most popular time to visit, with the high season running from December through March. So, if you plan a vacation during this time, be sure to book your rental early to ensure your ideal dates are available. The wet season lasts from May through October, when you'll often see a break in prices and crowds.

From sands and sea to jungles and forests in Yucatan

Yucatan's location on a peninsula jutting between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea means lots of gorgeous scenery here, from sandy beaches to coastal marshes. Enjoying the great outdoors is as easy as walking out your back door, if you select one of the many Yucatan vacation rentals located near the beaches of Progreso. Here, scenes of swaying palm branches and soft white sands, perfect for long strolls, come in full supply.
