    Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is carpeted with low forests and jungle through which peep the temples and pyramids of abandoned  settlements sacred to the Mayan Empire.

Explore all this at leisure and in comfort in your own self-drive car, staying at luxury converted haciendas and ending at a first class resort on the Caribbean coast.
