Getting away from the tourists sights of the Yucatan Peninsula, and visiting the lesser known sites away from Cancun and the Mayan.

I love Mexico, I love the Yucatan Peninsula and the Mayan Riveria, The sights, the people, the sounds and of course the food keep me going back. On recent trip to Mexico, visiting the Yucatan Peninsula and the turquoise waters for the Caribbean Sea – I took a side trip the the World Heritage site of Chichén Itzá. By all means Chichén Itzá is an impressive site, the massive structures, the beauty of the site, the architecture, the history combines makes this one my greatest highlights of Mexico. I’ve visited other sites during my visits to Mexico, Telum and Coba are two of the popular sites to visit. While both (Telum and Coba) are impressive – they don’t compare to Chichén Itzá.

While I love all of these sites, I also hate them. They are a magnet to busloads of tourists the flood the areas each and every day. Adding to the issue of overcrowding toursists – over the past few years the Governement began allowing local vendors access to the Chichén Itzá site. All paths within the World Heritiage site are lined with local vendors selling the ‘hand crafted wares’ (its funny how hundreds ((and I mean 100s)) of vendors selling the same ‘locally hand crafted items’ – I’m sure there is a factory somewhere in China turning out locally hand crafted Mexican trinkets). 

In my opinion all three sites are worth the visit – take some advise. Arrive early, expect a long day with and a three ring circus. If you are looking for additional cultural and history lessions will in the Yucatan – an artical worth reading is
