The guy in the middle is Orlando. We'd actually just hired him to take us to a well-known cenote in the area, but he turned out to be very pleasant and full of information, so we asked how much he would charge to take us on to the famous Mayan ruins afterward. He drove for a little while, telling us about the area and about his experiences, and then he stopped at a little stand and asked us what kind of beer we liked. We told him, and he stopped the car, got out, and brought us back a bag of beers, which we drank happily on the road between Valladolid and Pisté.
