Valladolid, Yucatan

Colonial City Valladolid, where two important passages of Mexico’s history took place: “the War of the Castes” in 1847 and the “First Spark of the Mexican Revolution” in 1910: today, it is known as the “Heroic City” and the “Capital of Eastern Maya”. Valladolid combines features of its pre-Hispanic past, of the colonial period and of today’s lifestyle. It has great natural, historical, sociocultural, gastronomic wealth; but most importantly, it includes the presence of live traditions and customs.
