Hey there, folks! I just got back from my adventure in Valladolid and Chichen Itza, and I’m as excited as a kid in a candy store! If you’re looking for a place to have an epic adventure, delight in delicious food, and experience rich culture, stop looking because you’ve found the perfect place!


First up, I visited Valladolid, a city so beautiful it makes pictures look like postcards. Cobblestone streets, colonial buildings, the majestic cathedral, the Convent of San Bernardino de Siena, and Francisco Canton park are just some of the things you have to see in this place. I was also lucky enough to enjoy a local snack, and believe me, Yucatan cuisine is an explosion of flavor in your mouth.

Next up, I arrived at Chichen Itza, and boy was it impressive! The best part of it all were the pyramids and mayan ball game. The Pyramid of Kukulcan is awe-inspiring, but what really left me breathless was the history behind it. The ancient Mayans were so cunning and advanced that the pyramid is designed so that when the sun shines on it, it creates a snake-shaped shadow. It’s like magic!


And the mayan ball game, ay caramba! I can only say that if you ever think about playing, make sure you have life insurance: If you won, you could end up a human sacrifice. And to think that we complain about our modern football rules!

After the adventure in Chichen Itza, I went to try out the Yucatan buffet. What can I say? It was so delicious I almost ate the napkins! I tried everything from cochinita pibil to panuchos, and everything was simply spectacular. And I can’t forget to mention the hot sauce, which was so spicy that I had to drink a lot f water to recover.


Last but not least, I went for a dip in the Chichikan cenote. And boy was it refreshing! The crystal-clear water and the impressive cliff make you feel like you’re in a secret oasis in the middle of the jungle.


In summary, Valladolid and Chichen Itza are destinations that will leave you speechless. From the natural beauty of the Chichikan cenote to the delicious Yucatan cuisine, there’s something for everyone here. So pack your bags and go live the adventure of your life! You won’t regret it!
