Yucatán (72 images)

Just months after Mexico's swine flu scare hit the nightly news in 2009, photographer and travel writer David Noyes went to the Yucatán Peninsula on assignment for AAA Going Places Magazine. While most of the reported outbreaks where near Mexico City, the tourism industry on the Yucatán took a direct hit as people stayed away. In just one week, David visited resort properties in Cancún, the Riviera Maya, and Cozumel, while finding time to explore Mayan ruins.
