Happy Friday! One of the most enjoyable things to do with your significant other or friends, in my opinion, is to travel. Experiencing new things and places with your loved ones creates lasting memories and deepens bonds. There are many spiritual locations located all throughout the world for lovers and friends alike. Each week, I will introduce a spiritual destination that would make a perfect romantic getaway or a fun trip with your girl or guy friends.
This week’s featured travel destination is Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.
Located in Southeastern Mexico, the Yucatán Peninsula was once home to the ancient Mayan culture and contains many sacred ruins and artifacts. The peninsula is also home to beautiful beaches and lodging.
- Coba Mayan Ruins
Coba is an ancient Mayan city located in the Yucatán Peninsula. The sacred site once held a vast city composed of thousands of structures. Today, only three settlements are able to be viewed by the public. The settlements include groups of various sites connected to one large central pyramid by ceremonial “white roads”. The sites that are able to be viewed are Nohoch Mul structures (main pyramid), Conjunto Pinturas (spiritual area) and Macanxoc structures (close to the lagoon that bears the same name). There is a lot of walking and climbing involved when visiting, so it is important to wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water.
- Beautiful Scenery
Tulum and Cancún are two very popular travel destinations located inside the Yucatán Peninsula. Both cities contain some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, which are popular sites to practice yoga and meditate. They also contain many health and wellness centers.
- Casa Axis Mundi
Casa Axis Mundi is a spiritual bed and breakfast located in Valladolid, Mexico. It offers several courses including spiritual training, Reiki training, meditation lessons, and nutritional coaching. Casa Axis Mundi received a 9/10 star rating for couples on booking.com, so it is definitely a wonderful place for couples to enjoy.
The Yucatán Peninsula is a great destination for a spiritual getaway. From sacred ruins, to beautiful beaches, the area provides a great backdrop to a wonderful vacation.
