A unique combination of condiments and spices (including pumpkin seed, oregano, red onion, sour orange, sweet chili, lime, achiote, habanero pepper and cilantro) give Yucatan food its distinctive and memorable flavor. Don’t miss out on sopa de lima (a comforting soup with a signature tang) or papadzules, a richer take on enchiladas.
In addition to the chance to dive into a cenote, eat amazing food and explore a history and culture with endless stories to tell, the state of Yucatán is ripe with opportunities to experience the legacy of the Mayans, as well as the area’s unique biodiversity and natural attractions.
