Celestun Beach Vacations
Yucatan is wonderfully endowed with cultural and natural attractions, from firm tourist favorites to lesser known delights. Maxcanu and Abala are two more places worth checking out while you're in Yucatan.
Approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the east of Celestun Beach is Merida, a regional center where you'll find Popular Art Museum, Museum of the City of Merida and Merida Tourism Office. Parque de La Mejorada, Casa Frederick Catherwood and Plaza Grande are other good spots to visit.
People who visit Yucatan enjoy the wide range of open-air markets here. The best places for travelers to visit when they first arrive in a new destination are the spots that provide a picture of the local culture. Don't skip Yucatan's history museums, craft workshops and art museums.
This region features plenty of laid-back activities. Set aside some time for picnicking or shore fishing and let your stress melt away. Pack walking shoes and join one of the guided nature walks.
Often, the most cherished vacation moments are found in a region's eating establishments. Cooks in this region frequently use avocados and bitter oranges in their cooking. There are many special meals in this area. Taste pollo pibil (chicken with axiote sauce) or sopa de lima (chicken and tortilla soup with lime).
You'll be reluctant to say "Adiós" (farewell) to this unique area.
