With the heat, humidity, water, and laid-back lifestyle, Flores feels like the Caribbean. Which shouldn’t be surprising–this is the trunk of the Yucatan Peninsula, after all, not far from Mexico and Belize. But still, it is 110 miles inland. It’s also a tiny place.
They don’t call it the Maya Riviera for nothing. Seven hundred years before all-inclusive beach resorts and ice-cold mojitos, the Maya built a city with a stunning ocean view. There are many Maya civilization sites on the Yucatan Peninsula, but none has a more beautiful location than Tulum, not far from Cancun.
