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. « less

This lovely city is dripping with old world charm. The church is gorgeous. I wished I had more time to explore.

After a morning exploring the ruins at Ek-Balam we stopped on our way back to Cancun in Valladolid for a wonderful lunch at the hotel El Mesón de Marqués. This hotel was originally a... More

After flying into Cancun and spending 2 days on Isla Mujeras and not feeling any authenticity of being in Mexico, it was a pleasant surprise to come across this town for dinner on our way to Chichen Itza. We liked it so much that we decided on spend a night here on our way back. Good place to stop and... More

Went to this quaint little town that also has another cenote that was beautiful. Very old town that has so much to look at and nice people. The cenote was not too touristy so it was great to get away from the crowd. Highly recommend to shop as well.

On a day of visiting Chichen Itza and Ek Balam, this own was my definite highlight. It has a beautiful old colonial look and feel and was a pleasure to walk around late in the afternoon. It's a proper Mexican town with all the things of interest that go with that. The architecture is beautiful and colourful and it's easy... More

Interesting city with a lot of history, if you are into cities and history. Not the sleepy little town I had envisioned, but it felt very safe. Lots of traffic. WAY too many large tour buses around the square which ruined most opportunities to have a drink or dine outside.
