A trip to Cancun without the Cancun
Here's the photo journal: http://www.pvv.org/~bct/yuca/
I realize that my stops are still plenty full of tourists, but they're quiet paradises compared to the calamitous Cancun. Worth considering for anyone able to find cheap tickets for Cancun.

Nothing wrong with having some cultureless / mindless / worryless / tequila drenched fun in Cancun or any other destination. Sometimes its great to deep dive in cultural endeavours, sometimes that is not what we need. I would say that Cancun is a great starting point because it offers opportunities from the 100% beach no locals, you would never know that you left US kind of all inclusive week, to 100% hard core local culture, no english speaking kind of travel.
I trully enjoyed my trip there after a month of adventure travel in some other part of the world.
I also enjoyed Tulum & Chichen Itza and the "culture" part.
On their own, I would not rate either part that high, as there are many similar places all over the world, however as a combined area its not a bad destination, especially as its close to many NA cities.
