Reproduction site of the white or green turtles and the hawksbill. Petenes and mangroves.
Las Coloradas: It is the most stable commercial point of the state of Yucatan for its constant production and distribution of salt, because it is here where one of the largest salt mines in Mexico is located, which has been equipped with high-level machinery. In addition to the industry that is developed here, it also has beautiful beaches, to which visitors arrive daily from different parts of Yucatan and even from the country since it is an area that is little exploited, so the sand is coarse and the waters are clean.
Chichen Itza: This pre-Hispanic city was the most outstanding capital of the Mayan area, at the end of the Classic period and the beginnings of the Postclassic period. Upon the arrival of the Spaniards, it became the most revered center of worship and pilgrimage in the Yucatan peninsula. At present, it is a Sacred Center for the Mayans.
Izamal: This colonial city is known as “the city of the three cultures”, because it combines features of its pre-Hispanic past, the colonial period and the current era.
Uxmal: Surrounded by legends, myths and anecdotes; poetic in its name and its history, is located in the valley of Santa Elena next to a series of hills that are known by the name of Puuc, which in the Mayan language means “mountain range”, and which was the name that later received the architectural style that the sites of that region have.
Valladolid: Also known as “La Perla de Occidente”, its greatest beauty lies in colonial buildings and houses, its parks, neighborhoods and churches that abound throughout the entire map. But not only that, it also has natural attractions such as the cenote Zaci, the Dzinup or the Samula.
