Southern Mexico

Home to the mighty Maya civilization before the arrival of medieval Europeans, Southern Mexico most notably includes the Yucatan Peninsula, one of the country's richest regions in terms of history and culture. Tours of Southern Mexico appeal to everyone from history and architecture buffs, to avid photographers and hedonists in search of that perfect seaside spot. A long coastline dotted with modern resorts remains the epicenter of Southern Mexico tourism, offering travelers a chance to blend water sports with culturally enriching visitors to a slew of Maya-related ruins. To get the best of both worlds, include Cancun and Tulum on your Southern Mexico itinerary, and then split your time between sightseeing historical sites and soaking up some Caribbean sunshine. Southern Mexico is in Mexico. Make the most of your holiday in Southern Mexico by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Mexico trip itinerary planning website .
