You will discover this ancient city perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea like an ancient fortress, offering breathtaking views of the Paraíso and Mayan beaches, as much for its contrasting colors as for its proximity to the jungle, the sea and the city. Then you will head to Valladolid, a charming, typically Yucatecan town that proudly boasts the title of "Mexico's Magic Village" because of its unique characteristics: its historical richness, culture and gastronomy, as well as its pre-Hispanic and colonial buildings, customs and ancient traditions, and its inhabitants.
