Photos of the Yucatan are what jealousy is made of. Super-chic Hacienda’s, white sand beaches with gin-clear water and dense jungles that hide secret ruins and natural springs. 


The Yucatán Peninsula

This stretch of Mexico would win it tourism accolades alone. The east side of the peninsula offers Caribbean crushed-coral beaches with thriving coral reefs begging to be explored. Snorkelling with whale sharks anyone? Inland on the Yucatan, greedy green jungles gobble up stunning Mayan Ruins and underground natural pools, biosphere reserves and sleepy fishing villages will have you thinking of investment properties in days.

And to cradle you at night after a hard day of taking in the Yucatan? Some of Mexico’s most delightful boutique hotels including Hacienda Temozon, the grand dame of plantation estates in the region and just another box ticked when it comes to experiencing the effortless style of this heavenly slice of land.
