    On my Yucatan itinerary I saved some days for visiting Valladolid, Mexico and NOT for its nearby world wonder Chichen Itza. It are actually the cenotes around Valladolid that make this city one of the best places to visit in Yucatan Peninsula. After you read this travel blog about the Valladolid cenotes I am sure you get itchy feet visiting this city in the center of the Yucatan Peninsula.

    On my Yucatan Peninsula road trip I decided to visit all the cenotes near Valladolid and found some hidden gems you won’t often see in other Valladolid travel guides. With Cenote Suytun and Ik Kil being so immense popular people are forgetting about those cenotes a little off the beaten track, but these ones are just as gorgeous.

  •  

    While most people flock to cenote Suytun, cenote Ik Kil or cenote Xcanche when they travel to Valladolid there are a couple less popular cenotes that are equally stunning. Off the beaten path in Yucatan, not touristy yet very unique is Sac Aua. One of the 12 cenotes around Valladolid worth visiting.

    During my 2 months backpacking in Yucatan I visited Valladolid Mexico 3 times. The laid back vibe of this sleepy town is contagious and on top of that it has some of the most beautiful Yucatan cenotes around. Cenote Suytun is one of them and in this blog I will tell you all about it. I visited cenote Suytun two times and these are all my tips. In this blog you will also find a Suytun vlog.

    One of the most laid-back cities in the Yucatan Peninsula is Valladolid. A small and charming city right in the heart of the peninsula. A landlocked quiet and hot town, that stole my heart. For many reasons I visited Valladolid 3 times on my 9 weeks trip to Yucatan. In total I spent 2 weeks here and these are all my Valladolid Mexico travel tips.

    Throughout all my Yucatan travel blogs I have constantly been preaching that traveling the Yucatan Peninsula does not have to be expensive. It just comes down to how much budget you have! Prices in Yucatan and traveling around the peninsula are probably only a fraction of what things cost in your hometown, but please refrain yourself from saying the Yucatan is cheap. The more you explain the locals how cheap it is to travel to Yucatan Peninsula the more expensive it becomes. Keep in mind that for locals the tourist prices in the Yucatan are expensive!

    After I visited all the cenotes around Valladolid in Yucatan Peninsula there was only one beautiful cenote left on my bucketlist. In April 2019 I finally got time to visit cenote Ik Kil and wrote down all my tips for you. In this travel blog you will find everything you need to know when you visit Ik Kil.

  • My last stop on my 9 weeks Yucatan Itinerary brought me to the enticing little island of Isla Mujeres. A lovely quiet island with amazing white sand beaches just about 8 miles northeast of Cancun. On my first trip to Yucatan in 2008 I already thought the island was too touristy so last May 2019 I couldn’t be bothered to visit Isla Mujeres again. Eventually it was because I really wanted to try wing diving, one of the best things to do in Isla Mujeres, that convinced me to go.

    By connecting all the amazing places to visit in Yucatan Peninsula I created the ultimate itinerary. Of course the capital of the Yucatan state was part of this big trip and that is how I ended up staying in this lovely city for 10 days. In this Merida Mexico travel blog I listed all travel tips I could find while eating, drinking, living, sleeping and day tripping around this authentic Mexican city.

    When I decided to travel to Merida Mexico I had no intention staying 2 weeks in this chaotic city. But day by day I started to like the city more and more. I got to know some off the beaten path places where only locals go and made some local friends. Im sure my almost 50 Merida Mexico travel tips will help you out a lot, check it out in the link. On top of that I stayed in a super lovely and charming boutique hotel: Kuka y Naranjo. In this review you will find out why I think this is one of the best places to stay in Merida Mexico.

    In March 2019 I visited Yucatan for more than 2 months and saw all the Yucatan Peninsula highlights. But don’t worry this Yucatan itinerary is not gonna last 2 months!

You will just have to pick your favorite tourist destinations. With all the tips and links to more Yucatan travel blogs Im sure I can help you.
