If you want a first hand cultural experience of Mexico then go to Valladolid! Unlike Cancun the majority of the people there are locals going about their everyday business and it is a beautiful place..
If you want an impressive stay in Valladolid, then choose Casa Hamaca! Set just off a church square, this beautiful guesthouse is surrounded by gardens of which you walk through before entering. The interior is full of colour and historical murals leaving you with food for thought around the Mayans and their culture. The pool area overlooked by the veranda is small yet perfect for having a cool off after a day in the sun. Our room was comfortable and I particularly loved the style of the bathroom.
The restaurant sits in front of the guesthouse and was very pretty, serving delicious food both breakfast and dinner. The staff were happy and friendly all the time which made us feel welcome.
A special mention must be given to Denis who when I emailed post-visit regarding my boyfriend's birthday was an absolute hero! He organised balloons, a cake and a mariachi band to come and play for us at a very decent price. It was such a fun evening we will never forget it! Thank you so much!
We would 100% stay here again and highly recommend you do too :)More
