Kinich Izamal
Izamal's magical maze of yellow architecture was draped with colorful paper flags on my last visit. Visually stunning, exploring the monastery & ruins allow you to delve into centuries of diverse history in one place. The vendors & artisans in the city center remind us of the interconnectedness of craft & place. Have lunch at Ki'nich--my Yucatecan boyfriend says it's the best food on the peninsula.
