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.

Wish we had longer

Had a thirty minute stop off on our tour for a wander and to pick up some snacks. Wish we had longer as some of the nicest shops /stalls we've seen in Mexico so far.

We had a rental car and left the Cancun hotel strip for a drive to Merida, by way of Valladolid and Chichen Itza. Although we expected a 2 hour drive to Valladolid, it actually took about 3 hours. The drive is very dull, as you're in the country side without much to see. Valladolid itself is a great introduction to... More

For me this little colonial town is one of my favourite places in the world. It's truely beautiful. Any time I visit Mexico I have to stop and visit. A day trip never seems long enough though! I could spend forever at the park watching the world pass by! The tequila museum is a must see to! Here you will... More

Within a easy driving distance from the coast...go! All of the big Mayan site are close by...and this little town will add culture and history to your coastal trip. At least five old churches, lovely colonial streets, an incredible 1540s monestary , and a main square that gives one the true feel of Mexico.

We stopped here for lunch during a drive from Cancun to Merida. The town is so picturesque with a lively square. Several options are there for lunch as well as traditional markets and modern necessities such s SIM cards and assistance with phone difficulties.

This was a quiet spot to spend an afternoon, beginning with the San Servacio Cathedral on the main square, across from the central park. Also on the square is the Municipal Palace. There, on the second floor, are four wonderful large paintings depicting the 3000 year history of the region and town, particularly noting the Caste Wars in the mid... More

We stopped here during our tour of Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. It is a beautiful old Spanish colonial town with a lot of charm. We visited a chocolate factory and a tequila museum / factory which both gave out samples and of course opportunities to buy (which we did - yummy!).

Went to the baleneario and had a fabulous time with the family! Truly recommend because you can bring drinks and food to have a picnic inside.
