Departure at 6:15 am from Playa del Carmen and return at 8:00 pm. Busy and well organized day. Comfortable bus and very knowledgeable and friendly guide Marcella. Add $26 US for entry to Chichen Itza and 100 pesos for Coba entry. To visit Coba it costs 65 pesos to rent a bike. That's what you should do. At the Cenote, it's 50 pesos for the life jacket and 50 pesos for the locker room. Buy the 2 tickets at the entrance. Tequila tasting. Bottle starting at US$100. Dinner in a buffet restaurant with souvenir shop where there are no prices. Just codes. Very good food. Add a few pesos for something to drink.

The guide was excellent and a good plan for the day. However, we had booked another date which was cancelled. Instead of a small group, there was a large bus and a change of plans at short notice. The pick-up procedure was a bit cumbersome and we were also left at the wrong drop-off on the way home.

It was a really beautiful experience, especially visiting Chichen Itza and the cenote. The guide was really passionate about the history of maya people and made this tour really interesting and enjoyable. He also had a good sense of humor so it was also a fun time. I recommend for an authentic experience if you stay in Riviera Maya.
