Picture yourself in a dreamy little yellow town!

Imagine a town where every building is painted golden yellow and where the cultures from the past blend together.

That’s the uniqueness of Izamal. Pre-Hispanic constructions coexist with colonial architecture and invite visitors to discover how they’ve nurtured their culture. https://www.youtube.com/embed/px4-S_aJVw8

There’s an important Mayan religious center and recently discovered pyramids that were hidden by the jungle for centuries, but that now are open to being explored.

One of the most iconic ones is the Kinich Kakmo pyramid, dedicated to the Mayan sun god. Visitors can climb all the way to the top to enjoy a wonderful view.

To discover Izamal’s colonial beauty, there’s no better place than the former convent of San Antonio de Padua with its walls covered in gold and carefully detailed sculptures.

Although it’s a great town to explore on foot, there’s a more romantic way to do it: there are chaises pulled by horses that take visitors through its streets to discover the quaint squares, colonial mansions, and parks that are rich in history.
