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.

Valladolid is great example of colonial architecture. So much so that it's actually quite surprising that more aspects of the town are not protected. When you visit you find so many of the features lost in other parts of Mexico in the name of change. Admittedly the same as you find in many other parts of the world and while... More

Valladolid was the last stop on our tour after first visiting Chichen Itza and Hubiku. It played an important part in Mexico's history and today it is a lovely place to come and relax after visiting busy 'touristy' areas. The beautiful Cathedral of San Gervasio overlooks the pretty town square and there are some nice little gift shops, a museum,... More

Very underated city. This city improves a lot since the last 10 years. Great achievement to be considered "Pueblo Magico". Very safe city, good quality of food and near to many interesting landmarks.

We stopped in Valladolid on the way back to Cancun from another attraction. The stop was worthwhile with a plaza with the Cathedral, Governor's Palace, water fountain, dancing and many local souvenirs shops.

One of my favorite cities. You'll hear Mayan languages and see women in traditional clothing, truly a magical city.

The cathedral is not spectacular, but it is worth a stop if you are in the area. It is a small cathedral that has been kept up well and there is less touristy propaganda than at most destinations of this type in the Yucatan. The plaza across the street is pretty good for buying souvenirs and the bazaar down the... More
