Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
Originally named after the then Spanish capital city and then relocated to its current area, Valladolid is a wonderful city to explore and offers much in the way of history, culture and natural wonders.
Visit the colonial era churches, 18th century baroque cathedral of San Servacio, municipal palace and stroll through the central square observing its architectural variety and charming curved benches for two.
Not far from the heart of the city is the Cenote Zaci, named after the original Mayan town here and perfect for a swim after a day sight-seeing. To truly immerse yourself in Yucatecan cuisine, visit Hacienda Selva Maya, a buffet style restaurant close to Cenote Zaci and also boasts its own underground pool.
