México Sur Roundup
Over the past month I’ve quickly highlighted several of the destinations that make southern Mexico a true delight to all of the senses. There are many more I could have included: Valladolid, Comitan, Coffee Country in Chiapas, Naha, a botanero tour of Tapachula, Lagos de Montebello, the mangroves on the coast of Chiapas and more. Plus, there are the many, many places I have yet to visit -Tonina, Calakmul, Becan and Mahahual come quickly to mind.
For this quick series I wanted to highlight my favorite 12 and want to consolidate them here (with links) so that there is a quick reference back to the series.
My dozen southern Mexico favorites
Floating in the crystal-clear waters of Bacalar.
Make your way to one of the seven wonders of the world at Chichen Itza.
Find yourself a hammock and a good book on the quiet beaches of Isla Holbox.
Visit the yellow town of Izamal.
Soak up the urban vibe in Merida.
Gawk at the pelicans in Celestun.
Fall in love with a pirate in Campeche.
Frolick through the jungle while you explore the ancient city of Palenque.
Head to the clouds for inspiring views at Las Nubes.
Contemplate deep-diving into the cenote at Chinkultic.
Have the beach to yourself in Boca del Cielo.
Go all Indiana Jones and explore Yaxchilan and Bonampak!
And of course, San Cristobal de las Casas must be on any and all southern Mexico itineraries!! I’m biased…but I’m right! 🙂
It’s a great place to explore, both on the well beaten path and off of it! Tie up your tennis shoes and come on down and play!
