We arrived in Valladolid about 4.30.

We drove straight to the town square, where we were shown a parking spot for us by a policewoman directing the hustling and bustling crowd of busses, cars, motorbikes and people.
We paid couple of pesos to the Mayan 6 years old who insisted on watching our car for us. Why not.

After taking care of our parking situation we proceed around the square to find nice place to eat.

We were disappointed again.

All restaurants made for tourists. All menus in four languages with the photos of dishes offered. All prices clearly for the "western wallet".

We said good bye to the hustling and bustling square and proceeded on Calle 41, turned left on Calle 44 and found a nice guy serving shrimp ceviche from his street cart. There was also a lady right on the corner of Calle 41 &44 seling some kind of empanadas.

We also went to gorgeous bakery on Calle 41 between 44 & 46.
All the pastries were between 3.5 and 4.5 pesos, so we got a whole bag for about 40 pesos.
(see our pictures)

Anyway, there is a police presence on almost every corner of Valladolid for all of you that are afraid to wander around of the unknown towns.

Address: Valladolid
Directions: Calle 41, 44, 46. Not farded than 2 blocks from the square.
Enter Calle 41 on the corner of the church.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
