Pleasant and historical city next to many interesting archaeological sites. The main plaza of the city is surrounded by old colonial buildings, as well as affordable restaurants and hotels. If you want to get away from the buzzing cities of Tulum, Cancun and Playa del Carmen, this is a good spot to base yourself while in Yucatan. Valladolid is quite centrally located as most highways lead to its main plaza. If you want to visit Coba, Chichen Itza and Ek Balam, Valladolid is a good option as these site can be reached within around 1 hour drive and many of Valladolid's hotels have full house service with good prices. During the day, it's a busy central hub and it's also nice to walk through it's marketplace as many stalls sell items handmade by the locals (and prices will surely be fair).

We wandered down to the square to see it and to see what might be going on. It is beautiful at night, as are the buildings that surround the square. In the square were vendors selling food and craft items. There was quite a crowd gathered to watch a troupe of young men in costume reenacting to music the Mayan "ball game." Very entertaining.

The park of a colonial city ... It is not something extraordinary, but if it is good to hang out. When I was there, there was a free musical performance by a local indigenous group. It is a picturesque little place where they sell all kinds of local folk food. If you will only make the trip just to see that place, I would not recommend it ... Only if you are passing through.

By the time our bus stopped at Plaza e Parque Principal Francisco Canton Rosado, Villadolid, our group was guessing how much $$ the tour guide and company get for stopping the tour bus there. This was the last stop back to the resort on the Viatar tour, and we were tired, and still had a long bus ride ahead of us. As others have shared, there was nothing special here, and very few businesses around the square were even catering to tourist. I wonder if the tour guide (and bus driver) like to stop there, so that their riders use a toilet other than the one on the bus. The tour guide told us early that morning, that ‘going number one was ok, but do not go number two ‘ on the bus toilet. So, I can report that the ‘public bathrooms’ on the Plaza e Parque Principal Francisco Canton Rosado, looked like they hadn’t been cleaned or flushed in days.

Lovely plaza in the middle of town, surrounded by the church, stores, restaurants and bars.
Ambiance is nice especially during weekends.

There are many kiosks with local products and during the evenings they play music and there is folk dancing.

Park is the center of town. Great place to walk or read a book. Colorful buildings surround the park and there are vendors selling all type of items. While there we saw a Mayan music group dressed in traditional Mayan outfits. Could argue was a little too commercial but the park is definitely a can’t miss when in town.

Francisco Canton square is in the very center of Valladolid with a gorgeous Cathedral dominating it.
It's a classic Spanish style plaza, rectangular in shape with many trees and benches, as well a fountain in the middle. Here you will also find the double curved lover chairs like in Merida.
The park is specially nice after dusk with many locals and street vendors around.

Came here as part of our tour and spent about 30 minutes. It was a great place to walk around eat churros and elote and take pictures of the cathedral. It gets 5 stars because it was free and I enjoyed myself. I would stop by if you are in the area but I wouldn’t make a special trip here.

The park here is very beautiful and offers some amazing picture opportunities with the Cathedral de San Servasio in the background. The found is a stunning centrepiece and the park is full of character and a buzzing atmosphere.

This park has a nice fountain in the middle with plenty of places to sit and shade trees. It's a good place to relax, watch people, and soak up the sites.
