Yellow and white are the colours of Izamal, Magical Village of Yucatan. The peaceful passing of the days is interrupted by cheerful festivals that are not to be missed, such as the festival of Santo Cristo Negro de Siltepich, celebrated every 18 October with dances, processions and dinners. Visit the Convento de San Antonio de Padua, and carry along your camera. If you are physically fit, climb the great Kinich Kakmo pyramid, set in amongst picturesque homes of colonial architecture. Don’t forget to buy handicrafts and taste Yucatan’s cuisine.
