Dream beaches with white sand and turquoise water, the second largest coral reef in the world, the magical cenotes which are one of the longest underground water systems in the world, archaeological Mayan ruins and the Mexican culture make the peninsula, Yucatán, in southeastern Mexico an unforgettable holiday experience. Visit Cancún, Tulum and Playa del Carmen tourist harbors, beautiful colonial cities such as Valladolid and Mérida as well as numerous interesting archaeological sites that are dating back to the times of the ancient Mayan culture. Paradizo has been offering luxury villas in Yucatán for many years and wants to give you some insights about what to expect from this amazing holiday destination, which is nice to visit all year around.





On a nearly 20 km long stretch of land between the Caribbean and a lagoon with luxury apartments and resorts. The climate is nice all year round, lots of sunshine, clean beaches and the glistening turquoise Caribbean Sea with its endless water sports such as swimming, diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, windsurfing and much more. Cancun is the ideal gateway to Yucatán because of its flights. From here, most of the Mayan sites can be easily reached in day trips. Besides, Cancun is worldwide known for its party and club scene with having mainly young adults from the USA and Europe. Numerous clubs invite the party crowd for unforgettable nights, Cancun is also known to be the most famous get away for the American spring break. But not only party lover can enjoy this place. If you like it a bit calmer, take the ferry to Isla Mujeres. The 8 km long island off the Caribbean coast at Cancún has a friendly, provincial holiday atmosphere with beautiful beaches, as well as diving and snorkeling possibilities. The island is the right place for a few days of relaxation after a round trip to the Mayan sites of Yucatán.




Playa del Carmen

Even a few decades ago, Playa del Carmen was a fishing village, not known and remote. The arriving divers who crossed the coast of Playa del Carmen to the island of Cozumel caused an unexpected boom. This quaint, tranquil coastline appealed to the holidaymakers so much that they preferred them to the noisy seaside resorts. Each year, more and more tourists came here, which started to build the hotel complexes, restaurants and entertainment centers. The main street of the city is the 5th Avenue, where the main sales and entertainment centers, as well as hotels, new restaurants and bars are located. During a walk, you can have lunch at one of the numerous restaurants where traditional Mexican food is served, or buy souvenirs at one of the shops. The seaside resort is known for its nightlife. After sunset, cafés, bars and nightclubs are opened for visitors. Many restaurants are open all night. As for the discos and nightclubs, the selection here is very rich.





Tulum with its Mayan ruins on the turquoise blue Caribbean beach has long been an insider’s tip for those who want to escape the mass tourism in Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Thanks to ecotourism and more expensive prices for accommodation on the endless beautiful beach, the mass tourism hasn´t arrived here. If you are looking for a quieter place without endless parties and crowds at the beach, Tulum is your place. Here you can find peace on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches without any people around you. Besides, Tulum has stunning Maya ruins that invite you to learn more about these archeological sites. The most famous Cenotes “Dos Ojos”, which are caves with one of the longest underground water systems in the world, are just a 30-min drive from here. And many other activities invite you to this incredible place.
