The Cathedral of San Ildefonso was built over Mayan ruins, using some of the Mayan stones. Hidalgo Park, the marketplaces such as Lucas de Galvez, and the Portal de Granos are popular sites for tourists to visit in Mérida. El Centenario Zoo is also found in the capital. Fun places to stay
& Popular places to visit Ivonne Aracelly Ortega Pacheco (born November 27, 1972) is a Mexican politician from Yucatán affiliated with the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and the current Governor of Yucatán. She is Yucatan's first elected female governor, although the second to serve, after Dulce María Sauri, who served as interim governor from 1991 to 1994. She is the sixth woman to serve as governor of a Mexican state. She is currently the only woman governor in Mexico. The highest authority is the state governor, democratically elected for a nonrenewable six-year term. A unicameral (single chamber) legislature, the state congress, is elected every three years. Its twenty-five members include fifteen legislators elected from single member districts and ten legislators elected by proportional representation. All are elected for nonrenewable three-year terms. The legislature generally meets once a year, but extra sessions can be called by the governor or by a permanent committee if the need arises.
Set in a vast, jungle-swathed, natural reserve, the pyramids of Calakmul are a prime example of nature and ancient history in perfect harmony. Far more famous and crowded - but absolutely unmissable nonetheless - are the ruins of wondrous Chichén Itzá, seventh modern wonder of the world. There are also Maya ruin near Xcalak.
The Yucatán Peninsula is hot and humid. The rainy season is mid-August to mid-October, when there are afternoon showers most days. The best time to visit is during the dryer, slightly cooler months between November and March. Hurricane season runs from June to November. Websites:

o Esquivel Carlos Loret de Mola Calakmul Chichén Itzá Although there are many fun and amazing places to stay in the Yucatan Peninsula, this 5-star hotel is especially amazing. The Now Jade Riveria Cancun has many luxuries: in-suite Jacuzzi, plush robes and slippers, flat-screen surround sound TVs, private terraces, 24-hour room and concierge service, wonderful food, and jaw-dropping views of the Caribbean Sea.
Located along a sun-drenched beach, steps from the sparkle of clear blue sea and just 1/3rd of a mile swim from the world’s second largest coral reef its a wonderful place to take a break from exploring and just relax! The Yucatan is a wonderful place to explore, dream, and relax. It has many entertainments, delights, and adventure just waiting to happen. The Yucatan is an ideal vacation spot. My parents actually went to Yucatan and stayed in this hotel. Here are some of the pictures they took. Another great place to stay is the Hotel Nueva Vida de Ramiro. Hotel Nueva Vida de Ramiro is located on the secluded beach of Tulúm, five miles from the famous archeological site known world wide by the same name and one and a half miles from the entrance to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. It is also 1,500 ft. away from the great Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest reef barrier in the world and only one and half hours south of the Cancún International Airport and 45 minutes from Playa del Carmen.
Hotel Nueva Vida de Ramiro is categorized as a Low Density Ecological Hotel. Its bungalows are done in fine wood on stilts with grass thatched roofs and surrounded by palm trees facing the Caribbean Sea.
Privacy is one of its most remarkable features.
