Attraction details
Type: Historic Sites, Cultural
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.

This town is gaining in popularity because of places like the Casa de los Venados. This town is on the way to Chichenitza and more tour buses are starting to stop here as an added attraction. I think a lot of people would generally overlook it at a promising stop. The main square is much like many other Mexican main... More

A beautiful colonial town. A bity though, that there is so much traffic in those narrow streets with all the stores and little fruit/vegi markets of the natives. One hasto be careful as the card rivers drive without looking at the pedestrians. Other than that I enjoyed the visit.

Really pleasant town with a spacious main square & atmospheric colonial architecture. Fair choice of restaurants. One of the best aspects is access to other places of interest. Two of the best cenotes in Mexico are at Dzitnup, a 40 peso taxi ride away. Chichen Itza is only 27 pesos on a second class bus. Obviously, lots of tour options... More

Vallodolid is a lovely quiet town not far from the Chichen Itza ruins. Much of the town is in a state of decay but there is some interesting renovation of old buildings happening and some delightful places to stay. The town square is lovely and the monastery is wonderful to visit. The houses around this square are painted in an... More

We really enjoyed our 4 days in Valladolid. Had a great room in the Meson del Marques which is right on the square. We had a car so did day trips to cenotes, Rio Lagartos to see the flamingos, Ek Balam, and a few of the neighbouring communities. Also explored the city itself on foot, and enjoyed some good food,...

Valladolid is a great place to stay and have some wonderful food, travel to beautiful sinkholes, arquaeological sites and get to know great people from yucatán. It is in the middle between Mérida and Cancún, but it´s beauty is that is a small city with great people.

A beautiful town square with street vendors await you. A beautiful cathedral right off the square is a must see if you stop. Lots of typical Mexican shops selling the same things they sell throughout the Yucatan. At dusk the grackle birds make quite a racket. Lots of families enjoying the weather and the people watching. This is a good... More

This is probably a market town and where all the locals for miles around will have to come for shopping, doctors, dentists etc. There are many small local shops and a couple of bigger fashion stores. You should be able to purchase anything you have forgotten here. The cathedral is light and pleasant. It is a good place to stay... More
