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.

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Zentik Hotel in Valladolid. It was an amazing experience check our review for this hotel. During our stay we spent a Sunday night in the town square where many locals gather. It felt like we had walked onto a scene in a movie. Everyone was so happy. Vendors were selling street foods...

Very pretty town with a nice identity and colonic spirit, located in the heart of the Yucatan peninsula. Great lunch/dinner spot on the way between the main Mayan archaeological sites. The architecture and culture of Valladolid tell a lot about its past. Looking around I've seen a bit of Spain, Sardinia and Portugal.

We took a day trip from tulum. The drive is great with numerous roadside fruit stand stops for fresh drinks! Beautiful city with an old Mexico feel.

We always top here to enjoy the less than hurried colonial style city, Plaza Grande is attractive with some good restaurants and shopping.

This is a very quaint town with lots of history. We felt very safe walking around and checking out the many shops in the area.

This is a beautiful city with beautiful people that everyone must enjoy. We stopped there as part of a tour to Chichen and it is in my list to go back. People were friendly, polite and willing to talk and talk about their city. Highly recommend it.

It's got some hustle and bustle around the square but a few blocks beyond it's a really just a small town. If you've got time to spare, go for a stroll around the city. It's safe and you'll get a great preview of the day-to-day for people living in the town.

my husband took us to Valladolid because the prices here for souvenirs are cheaper than on the coast. I thought it was ok, I have gone to Puebla and colonial Santo Domingo in Dominican Republic, it looked like that. It was charming and quaint, but not worth a whole day visit (like we did). There were many places to shop,... More

Valladolid is one of the Mexico's magical towns that still has it's historic charm with colonial Spanish architecture. Outside the Parque Central (Central Park) every evening people gather, play live music and everyone does salsa..People are just too beautiful and friendly :) In the park you will find many food carts run by local women serving delicious food. Don't miss... More
