Mérida is the largest city within the Yucatan and is the capital. The origin of Yucatan is unclear, possibly a result of a loss in translation between the Mayan and the Spanish. I spent four days in Mérida, looking at the Neo-Classic, Neo-Gothic, Baroque and French architecture littered throughout the city. If you’ve got the time, it’s also a great place as a hub for day trips.

Valladolid quickly became one of my favourite places within Mexico, and maybe even took the number one position. It’s vibrant colours, cobblestone streets, food halls and cute cafes – Valladolid has much to offer. It’s rich in history but showcases mostly, as a lot of Mexican cities, the Spanish Influence. If you look out – you’ll still be able to see examples of Maya Architecture.
While in Valladolid, I also managed to spend half a day at Chichen Itza, organising it by myself (okay well a friend organised it and we just tagged along.) You can read about that too.

Tulum has become bustling within the last decade, especially with artists and influencers flocking for the pristine hotels, beaches and cenotes. Originally known as Zama (dawn due to it being one of the first places dawn breaks in Mexico.)
