Valladolid

4.3

Sultana of the East

One of the gateways to the ruins of Chichen Itza, Valladolid boasts plenty of historic charm and offers a range of tourist-oriented services that ensure pleasant holidays in this area. While most visitors take a trip to Valladolid to explore the nearby World Heritage-listed Mayan pyramids, the town contains plenty of attractions that make it an appealing destination in and of itself. A lively central square surrounded by colonial buildings serves as the city's main gathering place, where the locals and tourists flock to stroll, chat, and watch demonstrations of folk dancing. A holiday in Valladolid also provides a chance to discover the local cuisine, with many affordable eateries serving specialties prepared using traditional cooking methods. Valladolid is in Yucatan. When using our Mexico day trip planning tool , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Valladolid

Valladolid offers an impressive range of budget-friendly accommodations, with very reasonable prices for comfortable hotels that would be much more expensive in other Mexican destinations. Parque Francisco Canton, at the very heart of the city's central grid, contains small, affordable hotels within walking distance of the best Valladolid attractions. You can also look on the western fringes of town, where you'll find several places to stay near the meeting point of routes 180 and 79.
