Lonely Planet writers Ray Bartlett John Hecht: Why we love Cancun, Cozumel & the Yucatán. "So you think you know what to expect in the Yucatán? Sure, there are oceans that are many shades of blue, long stretches of pearly white sand and chlorophyll green jungles. Plus outdoor fun: swimming in a limestone sinkhole, diving in coral reefs, exploring ancient ruins. But the one thing hard to imagine is the hospitality. Yucatecans are among the friendliest and warmest people around. They welcome visitors and proudly show off their regional cuisine and culture. While you might come for history and a beach, you'll leave with a lot more."
