Our Land

Welcome to Yucatán, a place like no other.

This is our land and we are proud to be born here. For its weather (warm like its people) for the traditions that have been kept alive throughout the years and for its festive spirit that’s found in each and every corner.

Mérida, the state’s capital, combines over 500 years of colonial history, present in much of its buildings, with all the energy of a modern city in which being bored is practically impossible.

To experience a great adventure you don't need look any further than the sacred mayan cities of Chichén Itzá, Uxmal or Dzibichaltún where you’ll be enchanted by its magical legends.

Yucatan has it all: Beautiful white sandy beaches, majestic haciendas or the spectacular experience of seeing flamingos in their natural habitat. Then there are the magical towns of Izamal and Valladolid, the famous cenotes, natural sinkholes with crystal clear water and many more attractions.

That’s Yucatán, with all the flavors you find at Eladio’s!
