15 days in Mexico

Mexico is a country for all types of visitors: it combines an incredible outdoor life with the Caribbean sea, an amazing cuisine and the stunning Maya culture. Here’s my itinerary into the regions of Yùcatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche.

Day 1: Arrival to Cancùn

Cancún is a perfect beginning point for a trip in Mexico.

The international airport is near to the city, where the incredible beach of the Zona Hotelera hosts one of the most famous nightlife in Mexico. However, if you’re not interested in parties and sunbathing, Cancún can still offer you the right beginning.

  • Rent a car at the airport to save time and money (FireFly Car Rental is the cheapest company)
  • Visit the MUSA, an amazing underwater museum
  • Swim with whale sharks in Isla Mujeres (if it’s the right period of the year)
Day 3-4: Puerto Moleros

Just one hour and a half from Cancún, Puerto Moleros is a nice town near the sea, where many foreigners decided to move to and live (happily ever after, I’d say).

Day 4-6: Tulum
  • Visit Tulum ruins early in the morning to escape from hundreds of tourists and the hot temperature
  • Take a relaxing bath in the Grand Cenote and feed the cheeky turtles
  • Rent a bike to visit the beautiful Coba ruins
Day 7-10: Mahahual
  • Snorkeling and diving in Banco Chinchorro
  • Enjoy the beauty of the white sand beaches
  • Book a bungalow in the quiet Hotel Maya Luna and try the delicious filled ananas
  • Rest in the Cenote de 7 bocas (jump into the big one it’s scaring but superfun!)
Day 10-12: Campeche
  • Take a long walk in the city centre, enjoy the beauty of the pre colonial architecture
  • Take a look to the Museum of Mayan Architecture and the Centro Cultural Casa Nùmero 6 in the central square
  • Visit the Ex Temple of San Jose, covered with bright blue and yellow tiles
  • Sleep in one of the elegant room of Hotel Lopez. The room turned out to be our favorite of Mexico
  • Drink a margarita in Casa Vieja, the spectacular bar in the central square
Day 12 -13: Valladolid
  • Enjoy another pre colonial city far from mass tourism
  • Visit Casa de Los Venados, the house-museum of mexican crafting arts
  • Jump into the thrilling Dzitnup cenotes
Day 13-14: Chichèn Itzà
  • Visit Chichèn Itzà, the worldwide famous Maya city, declared as one of the 7 Wonders of the World after 6pm, when all the people are gone
  • Go back to sleep to Cancùn and don’t be sad: your last day would be one of the best of the entire trip
