YUCATAN PENINSULA CITIES
CANCUN 
A destination ocean resort, Cancun has modern architecture, shopping malls, night clubs and restaurants.  Shop with familiarity at COSTCO, Commercial Mexicana, Walmart and more at "Las Americas Mall" (15 min north of Cancun airport).   
Flights arriving 1/2-hourly from all nations--especially Europe, Canada and  USA. 
 

MERIDA, THE WHITE CITY  Colonial elegance, shady avenues lined with mansions, museums, art and markets.  Merida was created by the Mayans in the 3rd century, rebuilt in 1500 by the Spanish.  Current information: YUCATAN LIVING, enjoy!   An enchanting place of art and history and echoes of the Maya, from ancient landscapes of the Ruta Maya , MERIDA is the better city around which to coordinate visits to Mayan Archeological sites.  For exploring in Merida, plan 2 full days for this part of your journey.  Ask for our list of hotels, haciendas and B&B's. 

CHETUMAL  Capital city of our state of Quintana Roo, three hours beyond Sin Duda, within range for a day-trip.  Swathed in Central American floral humidity, Chetumal hasn't focused on tourists ... but they're thinking about it.  With its lethargic, Humphrey-Bogart style, and slow swirling fans, you'll step back in time.  Wow! 2005 a Mall & 11-plex Cinema; 2006 Sam's Club. 

 

  MAYAN RUINS from Sin Duda Villas -  Near Chetumal at junction of  Hwy #186 & #307--within 2-1/2 hours, excellent roads.  Be in the midst of "The Ruta Maya."  Visit uncrowded, undeveloped ruins (archeologists on site) Kohunlich  (+Masks) Kinichna  & Dzibanche as well as Calakmul Biosphere.

     CAFETAL to KM 51 & XCALAK ROAD TURN-OFF (3/4 hour).  
Off Hwy #307 this road is excellent black-top running along the southern boundary of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere.   
Appreciate this rare environment, alive for a 1,000 years.  
Look for rare species of birds, and a few fauna too.

SOLDIER CHECKPOINT  (8 minutes inland from Hwy #307
Our Mexican Army (boys with guns), be prepared to stop.   
Because we are a "frontier" there is military presence,.  
You need not be fearful, they are serious and polite.
They may ask you to "STOP" although you are arriving (and who would be bringing drugs to Mexico?)
  We realize you're not used to the military presence--
But, they're here for our safety.
RULES:  Smile.  Be pleasant.  They like to ask where you're going, and may ask for identification; if so, show your state driver's license,   
Do not release your I.D.   
If you're asked for your Passport: You are not required to show it.  
ONLY MIGRATION has authority to ask for a Passport. 
--Tell them  "Touristas for Xcalak (ISH ka lak)".
