Paradise Hotel Collection
The town of Valladolid in the Yucatán is known as one of Mexico’s “pueblos magicos” (magical towns). Valladolid is famous for the colonial-era ex-convent and church, the Convent of San Bernardino de Siena, which was built by Franciscan missionaries between 1552 and 1560 in the Sisal neighborhood. In downtown Valladolid is the Cathedral of San Servacio (named after Saint Servatius), located in the main square of the city. The ex-convent is no longer in use and treated like a museum, whereas the Cathedral still holds Catholic mass on a regular basis. This pueblo magico is popular and a must-see stop when visiting the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, since it is only about a 30-40 minute drive away. Valladolid is a perfect place to stop and have a delicious authentic Mexican meal and take a stroll around to check out the colonial-style buildings. Though there is no beach near Valladolid, this pueblo is perfect if you want to experience culture, history, amazing food, and one or two of the many nearby cenotes!
