Yucatan today is considered one of the most important and safe destinations nationally and internationally, thanks to its culture, tradition, gastronomy and diversity, which is reflected in its paradisiacal Magical Towns


In 2012, during the month of August, Valladolid received its denomination as part of the select list of Mexico’s Magical Towns, which are distinguished for being places full of symbols and legends, which in many cases have been the scene of transcendent events in our history, besides being places that show the national identity in each of its corners.

For this reason, on September 2nd and 3rd Valladolid will celebrate its 11th anniversary and its inhabitants will celebrate in the way that characterizes them, preserving the traditions and customs, a sample of this will be the macro-vaquería in the center of the city, where the people of Valladolid will show off their traditional costumes and their best dance steps.

So… If you are looking for a family time full of culture and tradition? We recommend you to visit Valladolid, one of the seven Magical Towns of the state, which stands out for being the second most important city in the state.

Founded in 1543 in what was the beautiful town of Zací (Gavilán Blanco), and which to this day has a great historical legacy that fuses the splendor of the colonial era with the mysticism of the Maya World, this city is also known as “The Pearl of the Maya East” or “The heroic Zací”, a town that will enchant you with its colonial streets adorned with mansions and historical buildings.

In addition to the activities for its celebration, here are some other options to do in this beautiful city.

Culture and history of Valladolid

This city, considered the capital of the Maya World, is located in the same region as the imposing Chichén Itzá, one of the seven Wonders of the Modern World, which, in turn, is the main starting point to visit a large number of sacred cenotes and other tourist attractions.

In addition, during the spring and autumn equinoxes it offers an unequaled astronomical archeological phenomenon, a spectacle of lights and shadows that simulate the descent of Kukulkan, the feathered serpent, along its stairway, plus you can visit the Sacred Cenote and admire the vestiges of the ancient place where they practiced the Ball Game.


Also, just 5 minutes from the historic center of Valladolid, you can enjoy Hacienda Selva Maya. Here, you will discover the beautiful cenote of Saamal, a natural mirror of crystalline waters at an average temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, ideal for swimming and enjoying its beauty in an exotic and relaxing environment.

Another activity you can’t miss when visiting the Pueblo Magico is to discover the Yucatecan cuisine. Today there is a historical-gastronomic experience that will allow you to delve into the history and unique flavors of this beautiful colonial town. The purpose of this experience is to tell the history of Valladolid through the flavors and techniques that characterize Yucatecan cuisine.

In the main park called Francisco Cantón Rosado the walk begins after receiving precise instructions from the guide. The first stop is at the Origen restaurant located within the facilities of the Hotel Real Hispano with a tasting of the authentic dish lomitos de Valladolid accompanied by chaya water with lemon.

What else?

Next, you will admire the streets and mansions of this magical town before arriving at El Patio Restaurant, where you will be offered a delicious burrito wrapped in xmakulan or hoja santa, an aromatic plant of the region, as well as chaya empanadas with queso de bola.

As if that were not enough, the gastronomy of the region is emblematic, which is why you cannot miss enjoying the traditional longaniza de Valladolid, a typical sausage of Yucatecan gastronomy that can be found in different dishes of the region.

Originally this food was made with deer meat, but over the years it began to be prepared with pork; its unequaled smoked flavor over the coals makes it a delicious and versatile delicacy that can be served in various ways and that you can enjoy in one of the emblematic restaurants of the region such as Mesón del Marqués, Casona de los Cedros, La Palapita de los Tamales or the traditional cuisine of the restaurant Ix Cat Ik.

What else to visit in the surrounding area?

In addition, if you are looking to visit other activities near Valladolid we suggest the archaeological zone of Ek Balám, Las Coloradas, the Biosphere Reserve of Río Lagartos and Izamal, remember that Yucatán has one of the most complete road infrastructures in the country, so transfers from point to point are safe.
