Owner description: t: Valladolid, colorful and safe colonial city, where yucatecan gastronomy was born and the Mayan culture is still alive. Is located in the east side of Yucatan, between Merida and Cancun. Ideal place to visit archeological sites like Chichén Itzá (New 7 wonders) at 50Km, Ek-Balam at 27km and Coba at 60km. Also you can visit natural reserves like the Biosphere of Ría Lagartos, to observe flamingos and birds; and Punta Laguna sanctuary of spider monkey.

Stopped here on our 2nd chichen itza tour. Visited the Church---amazing. Had lunch at La Casona. Visited the Cenote Maya which was not as great as Cenote Ik Kil but was still beautiful. The central park with their lovers chairs are quaint. The colonial buildings are neat.

I was there for only a few hours but I was mesmerized. I'm already planning a return to Valladolid. I enjoyed traditional Mayan cuisines at La Casona restaurant as well as a Mayan alcoholic beverage called Xtabentun, I highly recommend.

This city is well worth a visit. It's alive with local Mexicans and if you explore the back streets to get away from the square you'll find great shops, people and street food. It feels very safe and everyone we met was friendly and helpful. There's plenty of chafes, restaurants and architecture to see. We were there on a Saturday... More

I absolutely loved Valladolid: it's a little gem. I spent half a day here exploring around and enjoying seeing the colourful houses and buildings.

We loved Valladolid. It is a beautiful colonial town. We stayed for two nights as a base to visit Chichen Itza. Happened to be there for the Day of the Innocents (?) and were treated to an unexpected, noisy parade/procession that seemed to include every taxi in the Yucatan. Also experienced a lovely dance/concert in the town square on Sunday... More

we loved our stay in Valladolid. we felt that people were living a so happy life there. Everyday life goes on, everyone goes creative. In the evening just being in the town center park is fun. You can listen to music, singing, watch dancers ... you have to visit the hair dresser on 51A, a great experience (english speaking daughter... More

It was a short stop, but it awesome history. It was named after the capital of Spain in the 1500. Some buildings have pieces of stone from the mayan ruins. Very clean cuidad.

We visited as part of a tour group on the way back to Cancun after visiting Chichen Itza. Unfortunately we were only allocated 15 minutes exploration time- the town only allows tour buses to stop over for that amount of time. During our very short time there, it was immediately obvious how beautiful this town is. Picture lots of coloured... More

A deserved title for the architectural beauty of its colonial buildings such as The Convent of San Bernardino de Sienna, the Municipal Palace, the Iglesia de San Servacío and the Museum of San Roque. There are also 7 churches in different locations that are really worth visiting. In Vallalodid you are in the heart of Yucantan cooking! The main plaza... More
