Yucatan Peninsula - (09. - 19. Aug. 2002): (The Yucatan Peninsula is a state of Mexico and positioned at the Caribbean sea also as on the golf of Mexico and close to the Cuba island. The city Cancun is famous for beach holidays for US-tourists. And the city Merida (more in the middle of the peninsula) is its state-capital, artificially build by the Spanish conquestors so the whole city is still colonial-stylish. Yucatan is very flat, very hot climate zone and covered by jungle, though the trees are only 15 m high, because the soil of chalk is not supporting bigger plants. Yucatan was the main-area of the Maya-reign before the Aztecs occupied it. And just short after that the conquestor came. Early Maya-buildings are dated about 600 BC. ):Yucatan Peninsula - (09. - 19.
