The Yucatan Peninsula is comprised of the states of Yucatan and Campeche—as well as Quintana Roo. Over 4,000 years ago these states were home to the Maya civilization, a culture that continues to thrive to this day in its people, traditions, and many archaeological sites. The state of Yucatan is considered the financial, cultural, academic, industrial, commercial, and medical center of the Peninsula, bolstering its economy with tourism, agriculture, livestock, and the food, beverage, tobacco, textile, and leather industries. Campeche, meanwhile, is a player in Mexico’s oil industry —its main economic activity— followed by tourism, logging, agriculture, and fishing. A strong infrastructure of meeting venues, highways, maritime ports, and airports make Yucatan and Campeche the gateway to the Mundo Maya, a place where meetings and events or incentive trips become experiences imbued with nature, history, flavor, and culture.
The predominant climate is subhumid, with a small drier region in the north. Average annual temperatures hover around 78ºF (26ºC) though they can reach up to 100ºF (38ºC) in May and won’t go much below 60ºF (16ºC) in the wintertime. Summer rains are abundant and hurricane season runs from early June through the end of November.
