If there's one thing you do when you come to Cancún, it has to be a day excursion to Chichen Itza. Absolutely nothing compares to standing in front of one of the 7 wonders of the world, and learning all about the immense and fascinating history of this area. Furthermore our guide, Sergio, was one of a kind. He was absolutely hilarious, and he knows the history of this area inside and out, and his passion shines through throughout the whole tour. He was great at answering additional questions, as well as taking into account the needs of the group! I wish I could take him with me and make him my forever tour guide!
