The state of Yucatan, located at the northern edge of the Yucatan Peninsula, is home to vibrant Mayan communities, 3,000 year-old archeological sites, enchanting colonial towns, more than 3,000 subterranean pools of fresh water called “cenotes”, and 250 miles of beachfront that run along the Gulf of Mexico coast. It is a destination for those seeking luxury: cruises operate from the port of Progreso and visitors will find a variety of world-renowned resorts, haciendas, spas, and golf courses, such as the Yucatan Country Club’s 18-hole, par 72 El Jaguar, a 7,282 yard Jack Nickalus Signature Golf Course.


Yucatan state offers a range of event space, from archeological sites to beaches, which are complimented by the unique and delicious regional cuisine, popular arts, crafts and folklore.

Merida, the capital of Yucatan, has over 4,500 hotel rooms, as well as the Yucatan Convention and Exposition Center, "Siglo XXI", with 68,569 square feet of event space for up to 6,500 people, located just 15 minutes from the airport.


Yucatan has a number of unique venues, including Hacienda Chichen Resort, an eco-spa resort located at Mexico´s most famous archeological site Chichen Itza, with 12 cottages with 28 guestrooms, and outdoor and indoor space for weddings, executive luncheons, galas, and private events with eco-friendly catering services.


The International Airport of Merida has direct flights to U.S. cities including New York, San Francisco and Miami, and the Chichen Itza International Airport is located just 10.5 miles from the archeological site of the same name.
