Valladolid

Yucatán

The Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Valladolid in Yucatán is one of those places in which time goes slowly,. This town still emanates the ancient magic of the Mayan inhabitants. Afternoons are made for wandering around its barrios full of colors, with its enormous houses that seem to talk about important moments in the history of the country, like the War of the Castes, The Colony and The Mexican Revolution.

Valladolid is refer to as the Pearl of the Mayan Orient since it is located in the middle of the most important touristic cities in the peninsula: Merida and Cancún. That's why this Pueblo Mágico is a must if you are planning to go to the archaeological sites of Chichén Itzá, Ek Balam or Cobá.
