Two travelers whom I knew in California, a Swedish woman, a New Zealand man, traveled to Mexico for several months and spent much of their time on the Yucatan Peninsula. When they returned, they could not stop talking about it. Their travel budgets were tight, their respective currencies not doing well against the dollar, and they'd heard they could travel inexpensively.
That they did, but that's not what they wanted to talk about but, instead, how nice the people were, how beautiful it was, and that they felt for the first time as if they were really on vacation! I'd love to make it there myself sometime but the next best thing is a YouTube video. Enjoy!
Oh, where's the Yucatan and what's there? ¡Aqui esta!
