Picture yourself in Valladolid, a colonial city located in the east of the Yucatan Peninsula which also has the distinction of Pueblo Magico, a recognition granted by the Secretary of Tourism to the Mexican states that have managed to conserve their cultural and historical wealth.

From the XV century until the end of the XVI century the Spaniards carried out the conquest of Mesoamerica, a territory that was occupied by the Mayan civilization.

Currently, the state counts with the second most crucial population of Mexico. Their colorful houses, peculiar embroideries and particular textiles and their exclusive gastronomy make of Yucatan one of the most beautiful and unique places to visit in Mexico.
