Colonial Route of the Caribbean

Valladolid, Izamal, Cancún, Mérida

La Blanca Mérida, as it is also known, will work as a starting point to head towards the Mexican Caribbean. Walk its traditional streets with mansions of colonial architecture along Paseo Montejo. Let yourself be carried away by its history and tradition in its squares, parks, churches and convents. Try its varied gastronomy; the panuchos, the cochinita pibil, the queso relleno and the chaya water, and at night have fun with the shows, painting and handcraft options that you will find in the main square.

Continuing through the state of Yucatán you can visit Izamal, known as the Yellow City, whose buildings are painted white and yellow, which give the city a colonial vibe. Its attractions date back to the 16th century, such as the market, the Convento de San Antonio de Padua (San Antonio de Padua Convent) and the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace). At night, admire the sound and light show in the atrium of the convent.

You will shortly arrive at the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Valladolid, a picturesque place with brightly colored houses and colonial architecture. In the main square you will find handcrafts made of henequen, leather, hammocks, woven clothes and typical food. In the afternoon, we suggest you walk the Calzada de Los Frailes (Frailes Road), a pedestrian street with bars, restaurants and coffee shops. This road leads to the Convento de San Gervasio (San Gervasio Convent), a Franciscan-style building. Enjoy the incredible experience of swimming in the Zací Cenote located very close to the downtown area, or the nearby cenotes of Samulá and Xkéken. You can also visit the archaeological sites of Ek’ Balam or Chichén Itzá.

Finally, after leaving Yucatan, you will arrive at the most recognized beach tourist destination in Latin America, Cancún Quintana Roo. With its wide hotel, gastronomic and entertainment variety, this destination has the best beaches, archaeological sites, cenotes and theme parks. It is also the starting point for Isla Contoy, Isla Mujeres, Holbox, Puerto Morelos and the famous Riviera Maya that goes from Puerto Morelos to the Sian Ka'an Biosphere.
