Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is one of the most popular tourism destinations.
Major attractions include Cancun, the islands of Cozumel and Isla Mujeres, coral reefs, white-sand beaches, emerald-green waters, and perfect weather; all of them strong magnets for international travelers.
The peninsula is also home to a large grouping of Mayan archeological sites; major ones include Chichen Itza, Coba, Edzna, Kabah, Tulum and Uxmal.
Many areas of the peninsula are blanketed by a thick jungle, and in the southeast, tropical rain forests merge into the borders with Belize and Guatemala.
