Off the beaten path in Cancun.

Yes, there is such a place. Not far away from all the tourist traps, high rise buildings, traffic congestion and cruise port, you’ll find El Meco.

069 031 046 056 057 063 066Now we were happy. Our main goal in the expedition was to stay away from touristy areas and find places like this. Just six miles from downtown Cancun lie the ruins of a pre-Columbian Mayan settlement on Mujeres Bay. Thought to be the launching point for ancient trips to Isla Mujeres, the archaeological site has 13 structures gathered around a central temple. El Meco is less well known compared to other local ruins, so it’s possible you’ll have the whole place to yourself, and we did. More to come about the Yucatan  soon. “Adios”
