From 91 Days in the Yucatán
We spent three incredible months in the Yucatán peninsula, and are happy to share our adventures on these pages. Though we were based in the capital, Mérida, we made an effort to visit the entire peninsula, from Cancún to Cozumel, Valladolid to Campeche. We explored a bunch of Maya ruins, fell in love with the Yucatán’s distinctive cuisine, and met some wonderful people.
Whether you’re planning your own journey to the Yucatán, live there already, or are just interested in seeing what makes it such a special place, our articles and photographs might help you out.

For 91 Days in the Yucatán – The E-Book

We spent three months in the Yucatán peninsula, visiting ancient Maya ruins, taking trips to the beach, learning the art of scuba, swimming in cenotes, eating incredible cuisine, and meeting some of the friendliest people we’ve ever encountered. Let’s just say, it wasn’t among our “most challenging” 91-day excursions. But it was definitely among our most pleasurable.

We’ve now collected our blog into an e-book for your Kindle, Nook or other e-reader. With over 100 articles and 200 full-color photos, indexed alphabetically and by category, this portable edition is perfect for when you’re out and about in the Yucatán. Whether you plan on sticking to the beaches, exploring ruins like Chichén Itzá or Uxmal, visiting out-of-the-way villages, or just getting to know a different part of the world, we hope that our experiences can help enrich your own.
