Full description

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, or a nearby meeting point, and then journey to one of the most important monuments on the Yucatán Peninsula.   Upon arrival at Chichén Itzá, look at the step pyramid of Kukulcan (El Castillo), known for the play of light from the equinox that casts shadows on each step to create an image of a serpent descending.   Go to the ancient cenote of Saamal and experience one of the sinkholes that form part of a network of underground rivers sacred to the Maya people. Enjoy a delicious buffet meal and take a stroll around the colonial city of Valladolid to complete your experience.

10/10 would recommend. Professor Balam, Alan, and driver Mauricio were awesome and kept us safe. Balam Was very knowledgeable and even directed to reputable places to buy souvenirs. I was skeptical, but turns out he was correct and had our best interest in mind. All of your belongings can stay on the bus at each stop. Wear your bathing suit underneath for ease and bring a towel and warm change of clothes for after swimming. If you have a travel pillow, bring it. It’s a total of 6-8 hours on the bus. The bus has a restroom for #1 but not #2. Bring snacks and extra water too for the bus ride. Overall, would totally recommend this trip!

Great day out, very small group of 8 of us. Our tour guide rotated between Spanish and English with such ease. We learnt a lot, we were given plenty of bottled water. Our driver was safe and chatty. The buffet lunch and swim were a highlight. Just bring extra money for the lockers and life vest which you have to wear. Only issue we were 45 minutes late being collected from our hotel as they went to the wrong one which is why I have 4 stars and not 5.

César, Ruth e Ivan fueron nuestros guías y chofer. Todo estuvo bien, la explicación de César fue muy interesante. El transporte no tuvo inconveniente. Sin embargo, el tiempo fue muy corto en cada actividad. Todo fue muy apresurado. Me hubiera gustado hacer sólo una o dos actividades para que valiera más la pena. También hubo un problema al programar mi recogida al hotel que estaba en Costa Mujeres. Aparentemente el chofer tuvo un inconveniente y no fue el día acordado. Yo ya había programado mis actividades acorde a esto. Quedamos en otro día y pasaron en un día incorrecto. Para cuando llegó el día que era el tour, estaba muy nerviosa pues no sabía si realmente iban a pasar por mí o había sido una estafa. Realmente son cosas que hacen pasar malos momentos en las vacaciones. El tour tuvo cosas buenas y malas. Realmente disfruté el tiempo en Chichen Itzá y me gustaría volver por mi cuenta para tener más tiempo de apreciar todo.
