If I could give this ten stars, I would. Our guide, Alejandro, was excellent. I appreciate the cultural immersion this experience provides and the wonderful people we met; Marcos, Jose, and Lorenzo at the Bakery, Manuel and Ana at their house to learn Mayan life, balance with nature and bee keeping/honey tasting, Gloria at her house for an authentic lunch and great conversation, and Alonzo at the Guayabera Factory (you will know how the shirts are made and buy at a much better price than in the city). All of these people were kind, gracious, and genuinely interested in sharing their lives and culture. We are grateful for this incredible experience and the opportunity to learn more about life in this region of Mexico. The visit to Mayapan Archeological Site, in our opinion, was better than visiting Chichen-Itza. The site is well kept, well preserved, and less crowded, absolutely stunning.
Gabriel met me at my hotel. The van was comfortable. After picking up a few other guests, we drove about an hour to the cenotes. We visited three cenotes in total, walking from one to another. One was completely enclosed, one partially enclosed, and the final one open. Afterwards, we ate a meal at the restaurant on-site. There were vegetarian options.
Eduardo, our guide, was knowledgeable and helpful. I would have preferred to leave downtown a bot earlier to enjoy swimming in the cenotes before the crowds. Riding the truck was a fun experience, and the food was tasty. Habanero salsa is a must.
It was so beautiful to get to know local people from Tekit’s town and participate in their daily life. We learned so much from Tekit’s community. We recommend this tour so much!
