The Yucatan region lies between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea and occupies a large section of the southeastern Mexican landscape. Travelers usually fly into Cancun, a major travel destination that draws tourists into huge resorts and exciting nearby excursions.
Although quite a drive from the Cancun International Airport, Hotel Real Hispano, Calle 42 #200 X 37 y 39, Centro, 97780, Valladolid, Yucatan, Mexico, provides a prime location to explore the eastern region of Yucatan. Spectacular views of the city are right off each balcony on this clean and historical property. In the morning order a Yucatan favorite called huevos motulenos and cap off the night with a margarita from the bar after taking a swim in the refreshing pool located in the courtyard.
The “Magical Village” of Valladolid was given that title in 2012 because of the rich cultural and social history found within. There is plenty of shopping throughout the town as artists have migrated there over the years and created a wide range of products. Stop by Coqui Coqui's flagship store Valladolid La Perfumeria for free smells and expensive price tags that will wake up one's senses. Pamper yourself by staying on the property for a truly one-of-a-kind experience with available dates currently displayed at CoquiCoqui.com.
Another option for luxurious lodging is Colonte Hotel Origen, Calle 46 Num. 200E Entre 43 y 45 Col. Centro, Valladolid 97780 Mexico. This modern and well-maintained establishment houses 10 allergy-free rooms and many amenities are included in the stay, such as onsite parking.
For a change of scenery head to Camino Real Merida in Centro Comercial City, Av. Andres Garcia Lavin 298-32, Fundura Montebello, 97113 Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. This Art Deco hotel is near the main drag of Paseo de Montejo and is attached to a breathtaking upscale mall.
Begin your day with the breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant with action stations and attentive staff ready to service a guest's needs in the morning. Take a dip in the outdoor, rooftop pool and notice the separate wading area just for kids. Bartenders will mix strong concoctions together to keep sunbathers cool during high temperatures each day.
Inside the rooms, there are options to reduce an individual's carbon footprint and the curators were smart to supply a steamer instead of a traditional iron to smooth out those pesky wrinkles sometimes found in clothing.
Merida is the largest city in Yucatan and also the capital. There is much to explore in a bustling shopping area that still remains safe and affordable all at the same time.
Weather and staffing can make traveling challenging these days. For flight delays try Hotel Hacienda Inn, Aviacion 709, Nueva Sambula, 97259, Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, near the Merida Internal Airport. Let the stress wash away in a relaxing pool and simple lodging that won't break the bank while waiting on upcoming departures.
