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.

This small but beautiful town was one of the highlights of the trip to Mexico. Not the biggest fan of Cancun, this was more along the lines of what I wanted to go to Mexico to see. Easy & cheap to get to by Citylink coach (do NOT go on a tour - they are a total rip off) from... More

An incredible place to stay, the chocolate street is a must visit and the Chaya drinks is a must. The city is a great place to stay if u want to visit cenotes.

Valladolid is a beautiful city. Took a city tour through MexoGO tours. My tour guide John showed me most of the Churches and other sites in the city. The people there are very friendly and hospitable.To walk up and down the streets is like walking back in time. There many places to eat and shop or just sit in the... More

A pleasant place to stay while visiting various cenotes and archaeological sites like Chichenitza and El Bakam...Avoid the massive crowds and garish hotels of Cancun!

Nice little town to stay if you're visiting chichen itza, or cenotes around. Not much to do in the city, but great to walk around and see the town. The sun is very intense with high humidity, so prepare to sweat and drink lots of water.

Beautiful Mexican town that has some great buildings. Sat in a cafe and people watched and had an authentic lunch also. Busy streets, people, hustle and bustle - just what I imagine a authentic town to be like.

A very colonial traditional Mexican town. See the beautiful church which was built from mayan temples that were torn down by the Spaniards. Many of the colonial homes were also built from stones from Mayan temples. Go see the church and view its beauty.

Stay here if you want to visit Chichén Itzá early in the am before the tour buses arrive. It's a great central spot for sight-seeing with the added bonus of being a lovely colonial town with its signature colorful buildings. Plenty of good restaurants around the plaza offering the signature Mayan dishes. You can't go wrong. The only downside is... More

It was a nice experience visiting the town of Valladolid, which has nice cultural elements of Mexico as well as welcoming people. The town is very safe to explore and is tourist friendly.
