Uayma

This small town located a few minutes from Valladolid hides one of the most iconic churches in Yucatan. Large rosettes and red walls with blue details are the main features of this church built in 1646. For many years this church remained in abandonment, until 2003 when it was restored, and the original stucco colors were discovered on the walls and facade.

Uayma is also known for its pottery and hammocks as well as its annual feast in honor of Santo Domingo held during the months of July and August.

Cuzamá

This small town near the City of Merida hides one of the most incredible tours for travelers in Mexico. Using an ancient Yucatecan transportation called Truk, it is how people travel for several kilometers through the jungle to discover three amazing Mayan cenotes: Bolonchojol, Chacsinicche, and Chelentun. Each of these cenotes is a unique experience due to its crystal clear waters and depths that are between 15 and 20 meters.

Temozón 

If there is a place in Yucatan that we have to recommend you to taste the Yucatecan gastronomy it would be this town on the road Valladolid – Tizimín. In this location, you can eat the best-smoked meat in Mexico and perhaps in the world, thanks to the traditional seasoning with which it is prepared.  In Temozón you can also visit one of the largest cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula called Hubiku and the impressive Mayan city of Ek Balam.
