Across the Bay from the island of Cancun the small exotic island of Isla Mujeres extends fir barely 8 miles.

On Punta Sur, the impressive cliffs that rise high above the sea form the perfect setting for a permanent international sculpture exhibit that stands side-by-side in harmony with the Mayan temple to the goddess Ixchel.
At sunset, the town’s typical Caribbean streets lined with colorful handicraft shops fill with passersby, while restaurants serve up the catch of the day.

Southern Quintana Roo
Bordering on Belize, the state capital of Chetumal is a charming city steeped in history and still retaining its distinct Caribbean flair.
Very near by his Bacalar Lagoon - often called the “Lagoon of Seven colors” to describe its multihued water – a paradise for water sports fans or those who just want to relax. The modest hotels built on the shores of the lake are ideal for getting away from it all.
El Cenote Azul, located at the entrance to the lagoon, invites visitors to take a plunge in its crystal-clear depths.
Moving westward from Chetumal, are Kohunlich and Dzibanche. The size and beauty of their buildings, some ornately decorated with magnificent stucco figures, make theme well worth the visit.

Chichen Itza
The great Capital city of the Itzaes impresses everyone with the size and majesty of its structures. The archaeological site reveals much of the fascinating history of the Maya: the immense Ball Court, the largest in Mesoamerica; El Caracol observatory where the Maya tracked the course of Venus through the night skies; and the Nun’s Building, a huge pyramid with a crack in that shows the varying stages of construction and development. The site’s buildings are beautifully decorated with stucco eagles, carved jaguars, and many other motifs, and high on top the Warrior’s Temple, the statue of Chac Mool, thought to be the messenger between this world and the world of the gods, gazes out over the city. In the middle of a huge plaza rises the majestic Castillo, or Kukulcan’s pyramid, a giant calendar in stone. Chichen Itza is 3  hours away from Playa del Carmen by toll road.
