Tizimín

Yucatán

Yucatan is one of the favorite destinations in Mexico when it comes to looking for small towns full of tranquility, a quality in these beautiful lands. And when we talk about Tizimín, we assure you that peace is the only thing you’ll feel in the atmosphere, helping you to shake stress off.

Just 200 kilometers west of Cancun and 42 southern Río Lagartos port, it has earned its place as a destination where serenity and rest reign among houses invaded by vegetation that give it a magical touch, as if time would have stopped.

This town, whose name means “Tapir” (a sacred animal for Mayans), has its origin in 1544, when Franciscan friars found these fertile lands ideal for stockbreeding and sawmills establishing, especially by the rainy season from June to October.

It’s a great area to exploit woods such as cedar, jabin, tzalam or sapote. There are also salt mines nearby, one of the most famous being Las Coloradas.

Among the several pleasures that will delight your senses, undoubtedly visiting the town’s center is one of them. Here are beautiful buildings such as the Templo y Exconvento de los Santos Reyes (Temple and Ex-Convent of the Three Wise Men), whose Renaissance architecture has made it a must for those who visit it, in addition to locals Fervent devotion for the statues of The Three Magi.

Nor can you miss the opportunity to get to know the Kikil cenote’s impressive natural beauty, or Kulubá Archaeological Site. Its cheap hotels give travelers on any budget the opportunity to enjoy this destination.

In Tizimín it’s practically impossible to stay on an empty stomach, as its delicious dishes such as stuffed cheese, salbutes, panuchos or venison pipián will make your mouth water. For dessert, how about a delicious yucca with honey or pumpkin molasses?
