Situated halfway between Mérida and Cancún, Valladolid, one of the three great centres of Spanish culture in the Yucatán, is often overlooked by tourists. As you stroll across its main square, passing the cathedral and Franciscan monastery, you'll sense that this quiet provincial town once had ambitions to rival its larger neighbour, Mérida. Its peaceful atmosphere now makes this colonial town a pleasant base for a short stay, despite its modest attractions.
