Description

After spending more than one month at Rancho San Nicolas, we left and slept at this plaza, it was the only street we could fit as the city has tiny streets. Could be noisy (car traffic) at night. Free. We felt safe, there is a police officer who stay at the plaza. It's a nice area of San cris. Walking distance to andador Guadalupe.
*edit as August 2019 : we couldn't see any police officer at the plaza.

We stayed here on the left side of the street one night! No one bothered us! Walking distance to the city is 15min, no problems to arrive here with our fiat ducato van! Noisy during night as it's a street parking, so that's not very surprising. We felt very safe.

We parked here for three days straight and felt very safe.
We didn’t sleep here as it was very noisy the first night so we moved to a different street.
On the fourth day we were parked with other two vans and chatting on the square steps, when a representative of the neighborhood came to tell us that the neighbors didn’t want us even to be parked there. Transit police came over and just made one of the van move as it was parked between the red and yellow stripes but said it was fine for the other two to be parked there. We ended up moving anyway as we didn’t want any issues with the neighbors. But be aware that they are sensitive to vans staying here.

Street parking next to a place. People around at day time and street lights at night. We felt safe to leave the car all day and to sleep there one night. It is reasonably quiet for a night.

Note: popular guide book says this area not safe at night. We arrived about 8pm to find the police there and thought that was a good sign. However, after asking a vendor about them, he said there had just been a fight and police were only there for that...and they left shortly after.

Driving truck camper is tough in San Cristóbal. This spot is perfect although I’m not sure the store owners like us too much. We stayed 3 nights to get some work and laundry done. Lovely town and only 10 minute walk to the central plazas and markets.

Do your research on how to get to this place as the streets are narrow. May be best going around town (if
Coming from Tuxtla).

Pretty level and noisy but that’s city living

Great place to park. Easy walk to town. Very safe as police patrol area throughout the day & night. Don't be swayed by the yellow painted curb. Only the red painted curb is off limits. Noise from street traffic is unavoidable but it didn't interfere with our sleep.

We parked here during daytime for about 2 weeks. We left the van at te same spot under the shade and everything was fine.

We were not sleeping here. We preferred to go to Arcotete for the nights as it is super calm and there's lot of green space for the dog:))))

This spot is no parking with yellow paints now.
