Podcast Episode 02: Traveling the State of Yucatan, Mexico

The Yucatan is more than Cancun and the Riviera Maya. In fact these Mexican tourist destinations are not even located in the state of  Yucatan itself (but on the Yucatan Peninsula). Actually, the state of Yucatan, one of the 31 states of Mexico holds much different treasures and it was definitely a place I wanted to explore deeper. So on my last trip to Yucatan Peninsula and I headed west from Mexico’s Caribbean coast to explore this state. I am so glad I did.

Podcast o2: Travel to the State of Yucatan

After a quick visit to the state of Yucatan to walk Chichen Itza and the colonial town of Valladolid, I learned there was much more to the Yucatan and for my next trip I decided to take a 6 day / 5 night adventure across the state of Yucatan working with Premium Yucatan.

The adventure includes a relaxed stay art the restored Hacienda Xcanatun, a trip to  Celestun to walk along a seashell filled virgin beach and see the famous pink flamingos with time at Hotel Xixim and then time exploring the capital city Merida with my home base at the restored French manor at Hotel Casa Azul. Listen in as he shares thoughts on the state of Yucatan,  describes highlights from his adventures, interviews owners and operators associated with Premium Yucatan brand, leaves us with travel tips, and gives us his special souvenir with the “Stay Adventurous Mindset Moment” learned from his adventures.

    I like the highlights beforehand as a preview to what’s coming, as well as the interviews. I feel like I’m there with you, which I love! Great podcast, Craig! I see great things with this!

      Well, there you go, Yucatan peninsula, yes… but Riviera Maya is in the state of Q.Roo, not the state of Yucatan…. but wait you’ve been to Chichen Itza, so yes you’ve been to the state of Yucatan too 😉

      Thanks for commenting, and I really appreciate the words of encouragement. Stay Supportive.

      And as for a tour guide, yes…por su puesto… Stay AdvenTours is your ticket to Mexico.
      Stay Making Podcasting Work, Craig
