My Experiences With Valladolid


If you are connecting with me and us for the first time with FIT Life Creation, I traveled to Mexico for the third time in 2019 creating content, being hosted on an adventure with Airbnb, and of course limitless transformational experiences


My adventure with Airbnb included a two day trip to Valladolid including Cenote Zaci.


It was interesting visiting Mexico 20+ years later with all the changes in my life. I reflected on how my health, wealth, business have transformed. If you are loving this guide, you will want to check out my One Day in Cancun, Mexico; One Day in Isla Mujeres and more in this Flying High: Travel Series.


I thought it would be great to share my adventures with you and do a one day guide on Valladolid, Mexico. Depending on your travels to Mexico, there are various ways to visit Valladolid. I came from Holbox Island and Pink Lakes the day before with transportation arranged via our Airbnb Adventure. Most of the routes will take you 2-3 hours by car.

Fun Facts About Valladolid, Mexico


Valladolid is known for its colonial architecture, colorful streets and cenotes. My story includes being conceived in Bulgaria, born in Poland, and in 4 countries by the time I was 2 (including a refugee camp in Italy.) 27+ countries later on my way to 100+ countries.


History buffs will love Iglesia de San Servicio church, Mayan ruins, and Chichen Itza within a hour or so. My fellow water and nature lovers will love spending a day at Cenote Zaci. Photographers will find photo opps at every street walking through the vibrant city.



One Day In Valladolid, Mexico: Itinerary to Transform and Travel


So let's explore the experience for one day in Valladolid Mexico. A day to three days is what I recommend. Depending on when you arrive in the city, and where you stay, feel free to modify your experiences!


I spent about two days in Valladolid. Our Airbnb Adventure group arrived around 4pm and stayed until mid day the next day. I'm giving you reasons you will want to stay longer in Mexico in case you didn't have any yet.

Valladolid Arrival


My trip to Valladolid was arranged by my Airbnb Adventure. It was great to have everything set up! We arrived at Valladolid a bit after sunset after taking the ferry from Holbox Island and visiting Pink Lakes the day before.

Right when we arrived, we checked in to our adorable Airbnb in a colonial home. We then headed out to walk near Iglesia de San Servicio. Our colonial Airbnb was less than a 10 min walk away. We walked around town square and grabbed some street food.










In the morning, we walked over to Cenote Zaci with a stop at an incredible coffee shop. After a debrief on the Airbnb Adventure, we walked over to the Cenote. You'll see my cliff jobs in the video below. We spent several relaxing hours at Cenote Zaci which is a must to unplug!


Once we finished at the Cenote, we headed back to our Airbnb to change and return to Cancun.











Reasons to Stay in Valladolid, Mexico Longer than One Day


There are many reasons to stay longer in Mexico in general. I've been three times to Mexico now, and continue to experience new things each time. I decided next time I come to Mexico I will definitely spend at least 4+ days in Holbox Island.


Valladolid, Mexico


Valladolid, a bright colonial town reminds me of Cuba and brought back memories of my time in Cuba with our retreats.


Valladolid is breathtaking with beautiful colonial homes, colorful streets, and Cenote Zaci in the middle of town! You may want to stay longer to visit Mayan art and a dance performance. Another great reason to stay longer is to visit Chichen Itza, one of the seven wonders of the world nearby. #stillonmylist
