Izamal is known in Yucatán as the Yellow City (most of its buildings are painted yellow) and the City of Hills (that actually are the remains of ancient temple pyramids).
Izamal's rich history which spans over hundreds of years, photogenic yellow streets, exquisite traditional cuisine, and majestic convent are just some of the reasons which make this Pueblo Mágico an irresistible colonial destination.
This is a charming colonial town where all of the buildings are painted an incredible deep yellow color. It is a photographer's dream! Take a tour on a horse-drawn carriage, visit the gorgeous old convent, look around the small archaeological site, check out the cafes and shops. It's a perfect day…
Colonial city, very romantic and beautiful. Ciudad colonial, muy romántica y hermosa.
Izamal has several grocery stores for basics. If you are traveling from Merida best to stock up and bring what you can from the city.
