THE TRADITIONAL VILLAGE OF TEMOZON SUR IS SET DEEP WITHIN THE FORESTED YUCATAN PENINSULA ON MEXICO’S SOUTHEASTERN COAST.

With both Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Ocean shorelines, the Yucatan peninsula in southeastern Mexico is one of the most naturally rich and culturally significant states in the country. It is the birthplace of the sophisticated Mayan civilization, with vibrant cities shaped by Spanish colonial influence.
