Punta Maroma, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
I just got back from this place! wow, what a nice spot. The people in this part of the Mexico were just the friendliest, most sincere people I've ever met, and they just couldn't do enough for us. And although English is widely spoken, some knowledge of Spanish goes a long way.

The ruins were beautiful, and although I had a mild interest in swimming in the cenotes (underwater limestone caves), I HIGHLY recommend one cenote in particular: Dos Ojos (two eyes). And make sure you take/buy an underwater camera with you. The colour of the water as the sun streams through the cave opening and into the water is STUNNING.

We rented a car through the resort where we were staying (70$ US/day) - unlimited mileage, but make sure you can drive a car with standard transmission.

Isla Mujeres, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
there is a michoacana right next to the basketball-field - the aguas are fine, as usual, but try the licuado de fresa - it is muy sabroso!

Chichen-Itza, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
Hi! If you don't care much for crowds or if it's not imperative for you to take a tour. I suggest that you rent a car and drive to Chichen-Itza. For about 40-60$ a day, you can bank in the Chichen-Itza and the Coba ruins in a day. My friend and I rented a car early in the morning at 7:30, were on en route to Chichen Itza and arrived there at about 10am. The drive was safe and we got to drive through little towns scoping out arts and crafts. When we got to Chichen Itza, the entrance fee was 101 Mx Pesos which is about 10$. There are guides that will give you the tour of the place for about $50. But we didn't really see the point of that. We were able to catch some of what the guides were saying to other groups while we were scoping the different ruins. In reality, the site is so spectacular that you don't really want to pay attention to anyone talking. If you know what I mean. Make sure to leave Chichen Itza by 1:30 if you want to make it to Coba with Ample time to see the Coba Pyramid (the highest in all of the peninsula)and go up on it. Yes, at Coba you can still go on the ruins during your visit. The entrance to Coba was 51 Mx Pesos about 5$. Make sure to rent a bike unless you want to hike in the heat like we did with my friend. Over all, during our whole day we spent $95 for a trip to Chichen Itza and Coba, including gas for two people... a real bargain.

Xelha, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
if you're going to the natural aquarium of Xel-Ha, bring a sunscreen and sunblock that is marked as biodegradable. you're supposed to use only eco-friendly produts, since you swim in a natural lagoon, not in a pool, and when regular sunscreens wash off your skin, they remain as a thin layer on the water gradually destroying the lagoon's ecosystem. but the prices inside Xel-Ha for these sunscreens are insane, think $25 for 4oz bottle.

Merida, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
okay so I decided while visiting cancun area that i wanted to have a taste of the real mexico, and took a bus from ther about 4 hours, luckily bus had a toilet and my Spanish is good enough. So anyway, Merida is a nice local town, I didn't see another tourist while visiting. Really great mexican food there, there are many nice musuems, spanish sytle homes. I'd recommend it, but not strongly, only unless you are coming near to Merida to see ruins at Coba
