If you are visiting Merida or Cancun and looking for other areas to visit, let me share a few suggestions from our recent family trip

Isla Holbox

trip 1

This beautiful island community is the perfect way to relax. With dirt streets, no cars (just golf carts), and the perfect beach front, this is the place to be!


trip 2

Make plans to visit the "yellow city" of the Yucatan. This magic town is a beautiful, vibrant city with rich Mayan history. 

Ek Balam

trip 3

These beautiful Maya city is a wonderful place to visit. Not only will you get the ruins, but also a cenote as well. 


trip 4

Another awesome ruin that is very close to Merida. This is certainly an easy day trip and well worth the drive. 

Not only are these locations beautiful and rich in history, but also very safe! We rented a car and traveled with the family. Never once did we feel unsafe!
