Yucatan self-drive

MEX38_Mexico_Campeche_Calakmul_TouristBoard_Free

Taste the freedom of the open road on a self-drive adventure, exploring lesser-known Mayan sites and discovering pristine and secluded white-sand shores.

Leaving the crowds and commercialism of Cancún far behind, travel at your own pace via the mesmerising ruins of Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá, stopping to cool off in the calm, azure waves of the Caribbean or one of the sacred cenote sinkholes that honeycomb the peninsula.

Continue on to Mérida, still brimming with colonial character and a tangible sense of Mexico's authentic culture. Use the graceful Spanish city as a base to visit flamingo colonies numbering in the thousands at Celestún, before dropping off your car and winding down on the idyllic isle of Holbox.
