Visiting Valladolid – A simple city
We made a stop for lunch, and… it was all. However, we didn’t miss much in Valladolid – a simple small city, with a central garden surrounded by the church, public buildings and… our restaurant.
This calm city, displayed around a central garden bordered by the church and some typical buildings, was a good opportunity to start living real Mexico, after a week in the artificial paradise of Cancun.
The centre of town is occupied by a square garden, surrounded by the most important buildings.
Though not outstanding, the general look is harmonious and suggests tranquility.
In Yucatan water flows quickly to a low level, being accessible through big holes called “cenotes”.
We visited this one, a big cave with a natural pool inside.
It was cool, and no one risked a swim, but there was someone doing it.
Eating in Valladolid – And the name is…?
We stopped in Valladolid in our way inland, just for lunch. With kids, difficult to adapt to strange food, we tried to choose a good restaurant, and found one in the main square, close to the church and city hall.
We had a good lunch, a moderate price, and the kids also enjoyed the meal. And that is good.
