A beautiful church in Valladolid located in the centre of town.
A Francisan convent built more than 4 centuries ago which consists of a church and a fortress.
A little chocolate museum where you can learn about the history of Mayan chocolate. The tour is free and we got to taste some amazing hot chocolate.
Our main purpose of staying in Valladolid though, was to visit one of the 7 wonders of the world - Chichen Itza and Mexico's pink lake, Los Coloradas.
We made sure we reached here before 9 am, and to our surprise it was somewhat empty. It was a great feeling to see something that we'd only seen in our history books.
The Yucatan Peninsula is filled with a number of cenotes and its upto you to decide which ones you like to visit. Since we weren't staying for many days, we decided to visit Ik Kil. This is one of the more popular cenotes in Mexico, so it tends to get crowded if you not there early. It maybe a good idea to combine this and a visit to Chichen Itza on the same day.
We drove 2 hours each way just to see the pink lagoons of Mexico. And let me tell, it was unreal! We didn't get into the lake, although it was just nice seeing all that pink around us.
