This city has so much Colonial charm! It is large enough to have lots of city amenities but small enough to retain its quaintness. I was only in town one night and part of the next day so I feel I barely scratched the surface of what can be seen. The main plaza is very elegant at night...an enjoyable strolling venue. If you are looking for high quality Day of the Dead Catrina as souvenirs or collectibles, I highly recommend the shop on the plaza with life size metal Catrinas flanking the entry. I also recommend dining at the Hotel El Meson del Marques on the main plaza for authentic Yucatecan cuisine. If you have time to travel out of town, the Mayan site of Ek Balam is a must do. I was fortunate enough to arrive in the area at the time of the Sacred Maya Moments outdoor theater performance...a breathtaking event!
