Lovely place. My favorite in the Yucatan. Very colorful and active. Loved the Cenote Zaci. Food was good. Hostel Candelaria was nice. Very easy to navigate and not dirty like Merida or Playa del Carmen.

So much to do and see here. Close to several ruins and a town with much colonial history with a nice town square. I found much to do inbetween relaxing at Casa Hamaca (a wonderful guesthouse).Valladolid is a great place to stay while exploring central yucatan.

It´s a very charming city, a small city, a really yucatecan one, but with plenty of good hotels and restaurants. This city is a good base to go to other parts of Yucatán. Buses and "colectivos" timetable to Chichen Itza begins at 08:00 am and it takes 40min to get there, you can visit the ruins before the crowds arrive... More

My first visit was in 2009 when the whole town seemed to be under construction. This time we saw very little. Planned to visit 3-4 local cenotes via rental bicycles, but found out we were not allowed to ride bikes on the sidewalks. Traffic was very heavy all of the time, and I did not feel comfortable about riding in... More

If you want to see what 'real' Yucatecan and Mayan life is like, you must visit Valladolid! It's got tons of small town charm -- a great town square and cathedral. A working monastery and vibrant plaza. Tons of good food without tourist prices. Awesome day tours through MexiGo Tours!

The town just got the Puebla Majica designation a few years ago (2012?) and seems to be trying to grow into a tourist town. There are a few attractive and interesting attractions and some good shopping, but not on the scale of cities like Cuernavaca or San Miguel de Allende, for example. Expect to see squalor in some neighborhoods, and... More
