Located in the North Western part of the Yucatan Peninsula, Yucatan is famed for its beautiful coastline facing the Gulf of Mexico. It is surrounded by the beautiful states of Quintana Roo, which is home of Cancun, and Campeche.
Yucatan is where the Chicxulub Crater is located. According to geologists, this crater was formed about 65 million years ago, when Earth collided with a meteorite. It has since been associated with the extinction of the dinosaurs.
In the historic times, this place was considered the center of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Until now, the Mayan people still play a vital role in the population of the state.
