Nowhere is the flavor of the Yucatán more intense than in the west of the region, around its historic capital, Mérida. In these parts, there is an extraordinary density of Mayan relics and, although they may not match the awe-inspiring power of Chichén Itzá, sites such as Uxmal show the architecture of the Maya at its most elegant. Beyond the main sights are stretches of wilderness, hidden lagoons, and small towns dripping with bougainvillea and hibiscus.
