#YUCATAN is a famous tourist destination. Old Maya cities, cenotes and the clear Caribbean Sea characterizes the Yucatan Peninsula. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas. Chicken Itza and Coba are really worth a visit, too. While the Tulum ruins face directly to the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, Coba is located in the middle of the jungle. Yucatan is a great destination also if you like to combine adventure with relax.
