This classic Yucatán trip by rental car combines the highlights of the Yucatán Peninsula to a diversified and relaxing trip that is also suitable for families.
Famous and less famous Mayan places such as Chichén Itzá, Uxmal, Calakmul or Ek Balám, Becan and Kohunlich alternate with colonial cities such as Valladolid, Mérida and Campeche. In between, there are always unusual places such as faded ex-haciendas and dreamy bathing places to discover before Tulúms powder white beaches are waiting at the end of the trip.
