Tizimín the capital of the largest municipality of the State in terms of territory, is an excellent option to visit during the Holy Week holidays… Just in case you are in Mérida wondering where to go for Semana Santa.
Known as the City of Kings, Tizimín has several tourist attractions, among which the most representative is the Temple of the Three Kings, located in the Center of town.
The temple is one of several colonial buildings from the Franciscan period that are well preserved in the downtown area of Tizimín, such as the former convent located next to the sanctuary of the Kings.
The entrance to the former convent is free. The building, which construction began in 1563, boasts high walls and stone-made arches.
In the afternoons families usually gather in the esplanade and enjoy popcorn, fried potatoes, marquesitas or salted corn.
Two blocks away from the main park, near the Plaza de los Cenotes, is the Art and History Hall of Tizimín, where more than 200 photographs, documents, musical instruments and archaeological pieces of the Mayan culture are on display.
Zoológico La Reina
If family entertainment is required, you can visit the Zoológico La Reina, which has playgrounds and recreational areas, two wading pools, the wooden bridge and the concrete slide. One of the most demanded attractions for kids and parents is the electric trolley, at 15 pesos per person.
In front of the Zoo you can enjoy the traditional marquesitas, ice cream and bolis of “Don Cuqui“, a family business that is one of the first in the municipality.
Another place that should not be missed are the catacombs, caverns located four blocks from the main square and that feature figures made from the basis of a Sasscab tree over 50 years ago. The entrance costs 15 pesos per person.
At night there are several family restaurants and bars around the main square.
In addition, Tizimín is the starting point to visit the near ports of El Cuyo, San Felipe, Rio Lagartos and Las Coloradas.
