Valladolid has a new Tourism Board that is doing a bang up job for this great colonial city. Valladolid is located between the Coba Ruins and Chichen Itza with local tours stopping at this influential city so visitors can tour around in the city and see the first Roman Catholic church that was built in the area.
As more visitors look for cultural activities while visiting the Riviera Maya, Valladolid is a favorite destination. The city is historical, local merchants friendly, the drive is about 2.5 hours from Playa del Carmen and it proves to be a great day trip over and over again.
The new Valladolid Tourism Board is putting together local information and things to do in Valladolid including this great event ‘International Festival of Mayan Culture’ that will start October 17 and run until November 3, 2013. Events are held daily, are diverse, and held in various locations throughout the city. This is something that we hope to be attending! We have the promotional information that shows the dates, the time, the location, and the activity for the 18 day festival. This provides everyone with lots of opportunities to visit Valladolid and take in the history and culture of this precious colonial town.
