Valladolid, Yucatán

As the oldest town in the Mexican peninsula, Valladolid is a wonderful city. Every single building has a particular aesthetic that tells you the stories of this town. It’s a particular place where traditions are deeply rooted in religion, so you will see many wonderful churches, such as the ones dedicated to Santa Lucía, Santa Ana, and San Juan.

This is also a place where you will find some of the best crafts, like stone sculptures and hammocks. And like any other marvelous place in Yucatán, it has a natural beauty that’s impossible to ignore. Valladolid has 10 cenotes, out of which the most important one is the Cenote Zaci, a deep cavern with ancient stalactites.

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato

If you’ll visit San Miguel de Allende, you’ll find cobblestone streets, colorful houses, many colonial mansions turned into museums, and, of course, the Church of Saint Michael the Archangel, magically carved out of pink sandstone.

This town has everything, from the beauty and traditions of the past to modern trends and luxurious living. It’s also the home to many relevant art galleries, so many national and international artists visit the city.
