2012 seemed like a good year to travel to the Yucatan Peninsula for various reasons. One reason being, the hype that surrounds the restart of the ancient Mayan calendar on 12/21/2012.
This vacation destination offers many sights to see and places to go and things to do.
I recommend having a lot of time there in order to accomplish visiting even a handful of Mayan ruins, for you will cover some serious road time if you decide to visit them.
