The streets are pretty for a couple of photos but not much beyond that. Nothing open besides a handful of shops and restaurants. The streets are very narrow and the sidewalks barely existent. Even a little traffic makes it congested and not much fun to explore.

The Yucatan Peninsula is full of cities with at least one street like Calzeda de los Frailes. Decoratively painted houses, neat pavement, slightly too expensive shops and restaurants - and a crowd of tourists with their mobile cameras out.

The street is photogenic, yes, and certainly one of Valladolid's major tourist attractions. But it doesn't really have much soul and authenticity, sorry.

This is a perfectly charming street in a perfectly charming town and compared to some of Mexico's more unsavory areas this may be considered a dream site of safety and exploration. But I was just dismayed at how the modern travel-writer/influencer/hipster culture these days hype up every single small up and coming area, disingenuously amplifying the cool factor. Currently it's a simple, nice, pleasant town-- nothing more, nothing less. Yet either the town itself or maybe there's a feedback loop from the write-ups and influencers who are responsible but there seems to be a very painfully obvious effort to be more cool than what it is; as seen by the hipster cafes with their gluten free pastries and overpriced handcrafted jewelry for sale. I feel bad for sounding like I'm trashing the place because it certainly doesn't deserve that but travel-writing has to be honest above all and I was annoyed at my travel companion for making me take a side trip to this town when it really wasn't worth it. If you're backpacking through Mexico for weeks, by all means stop here. But if your just trying to squeeze it in on a day trip to Chichen Itza, skip it.

Valladolid is this rather small, very friendly & personal city, with tons and tons of Colonial Charm. Beautiful buildings, great little stores and restaurants.

Sure, you can tell the town is (too close) to Cancun, but it has tons of charm. Well worth a visit!

I rented an airbnb from here to explore the cenote country. Loved it. Highly recommend a walk to explore the shops and buildings.

I was kind of taken aback by this sophisticated street in this little town. Postcard perfect with some truly big-city shops, restaurants and hotels. Both day and night it is a wonderful place to explore.

Every evening at 7:00 p.m., a free walking tour is offered in Old Valladolid. It takes you down this street which is especially charming in the evening light. A residential area, there are also some fine restaurants, bars, and shops. The street ends at the Convent de San Bernardino de Siena.

This is a very pretty town, where you can get a more local Mexican experience. I can definitely recommend to go and combine it with the cenotes nearby which are gorgeous too.
