Begin the week in the city of the Three Magi, Tizimín. Take a relaxed stroll to see the sights around town, and if you have time, head to the archaeological site of Kulubá and the cenote Kikil, nearby.





Go to Río Lagartos for a birdwatching tour; don’t forget your bathing suit, you’re going to need it if you want a healing mud wrap you can rinse off at the beach. Before going back to Tizimín, make a detour for pictures at Las Coloradas.





Next stop: the magical village of Valladolid. On your way, stop by the Ek Balam archeological site and cenote X’Canché, and then at Temozón to try delicious smoked meat. Rest the day away at Hotel Le Muuch.





Try Valladolid’s typical Chachacuás for breakfast. Then stroll around the city center and La Calzada de los Frailes all the way to the former convent of San Bernardino de Siena. Visits to Perfumería Coqui Coqui and the cenote Zací (pronounced Sakee) are a must.





Leave early in the morning to beat the crowds and visit Chichén Itzá and cenote Ik Kil. Then off to Izamal for lunch (tip: Papadzules at Kinich) and then a quiet afternoon exploring its streets, monuments, and artisan workshops.





On your way to Mérida, stop by the spectacular Hacienda Teya for a delicious lunch; don’t miss out on their delicious candied papaya with Edam cheese. An excellent lodging option in the city is Wayam Mundo Imperial.





The Yucatecan winter mornings are the perfect time to tour Mérida’s Centro by foot or rental bike. Afterwards, stop by La Negrita Cantina for food, drinks, and an excellent Cuban-inspired atmosphere. When ordering, ask for Botana; you’ll get free snacks like peanuts and popcorn.
