    pollon's General Tip

    by pollon Written Oct 4, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: it's always a surprise when you don't expect anything and you find the opposite and Chetumal should have been just a stop to catch the early bus to cross the border the morning after... The history of this town says that after the conquest it wasn't really settled untill 1898 when it was founded to stop the illegal trade in arms and lumber but I wouldn't exclude that some smuggling is still going on as the average life level seems to be of general welfare, which stuck me after having seen, in the rest of the Mexico I visited, the rich structures built for tourists near the much more simply and at the eyes of an European poor villages... But I think the charm of this town on me was also due to its non touristic life as I arrived from not off the beaten path places while here the market (in the pic) didn't sell souvernirs but everyday stuff and I felt like one of the very few tourists there and the town seemed to me more real...

    Favorite thing: If you are going to Chetumal you got be going to see the pyramids. In the immediate area of Chetumal there is Kohunlich, Dzibanche,and Kinichna. These pyramids are wonderful to explore and hike around. Being fairly newly discovered they give you the sence that you are the one who has discovered them.
