Valladolid is a town that is transitioning, becoming a touristic, gastronomic and cultural attraction on its own. For us, it seems like every day there is a new boutique, shop, restaurant, etc.
Each month newcomers arrive at our Magic Town: Valladolid Yucatan. The population in Valladolid is mostly made up of students who come to the universities, employees and permanent residents who seek to establish themselves in this beautiful destination.
If you are a newcomer, you are sure to be able to explore its colorful streets, immerse yourself in the mysterious cenotes or explore the impressive archaeological sites located nearby. Valladolid is a vibrant town, full of magic and smiles but newcomers are soon wondering the most basic things about living here. For this reason we made this small manual for newcomers.
Where is the CFE or electricity company in Valladolid Yucatan?
If you have to pay your electricity bill in Valladolid Yucatan, there is only one service office, very close to the market at the corner of Calle 30 and 35 of Colonia Santa Ana. To see the location in google maps click here.
Remember that the electricity bill can be paid at any bank, pharmacy or convenience store. You can also pay online, by direct debit and even from your phone as they have an App for your cell phone, which works wonderfully, but you need to have a Mexican credit or debit card to be able to pay your bill using this app.
Where can I contract or pay the water service in Valladolid Yucatan?
Payment of your water bill is a process that takes time, as SAPAM (Water Supply and Sewerage System of the City of Valladolid) has an office with three windows to serve all its users.
This service is paid in person at the office located in the white building located at the corner of Calle 30 and 35 S / N. Now you can also pay at oxxo, as long as you have your bill and the due date hasn't passed. but what can be done is to advance an amount and take it into account in future months.
Where can I contract internet services in Valladolid Yucatan?
Valladolid has a reasonable variety of internet services both through cable, antennas, etc. We list the most popular below.
Telmex has limited service in Valladolid since it offers speeds only up to 10 Megabytes, but at the same time, it is one of the most reliable. Telmex offers you telephony and digital television services, which are charged in the same bill.

There is no internet service more controversial than IZZI, on the one hand, they offer the broadest range of speeds, with packages of up to 200 megabytes and includes cable and telephone service for very accessible prices.

Where can I hire garbage service in Valladolid Yucatan?
Trash services are not free in the city of Valladolid, even though the service is provided by the municipality. This means that when you pay the property taxes at the beginning of the year, the garbage collection service is not included.
This service can be paid monthly, bimonthly, half-yearly or the whole year. The estimated payment is 40 pesos per month and in the case of covering the entire year, two months of payments are deducted.
It is essential to present yourself with the previous payment receipt if you have it. To make the contract, it is necessary to bring an electricity or water bill, official ID and the amount to be paid in cash since they do not accept electronic payments.
The garbage payment office is located in the lower part of the municipal palace, at the corner of 40th and 41st streets, in the center of the city. The entrance is on the street 40, where there are some arches.
