We were blessed to have a wonderful weather and the best guide ever. We had Oscar and Cesar. Cesar was our guide and a very enthusiastic anthropologist who loved teaching us about the history of the Mayans and of the local cenotes. The trip took us to wonderful places and we got to eat a fine meal at a top restraunt followed by sampling chocolates at a Local factory. We really got the best tour of Chechen ItZa.

the visit to chichen itza was very nice. Felipe taught us a lot of very interesting things. Too bad we didn't have more time to walk around and buy souvenirs. Lunch in Valladolid was very good, in a very nice restaurant in a hacienda with a fountain. There is no tour of the city but only 30 min to walk in the free area. finally the cenote is very nice, we stay there for about an hour.

We had a wonderful time! Chichen Itza did not disappoint, we did not have enough time to tour around Villadolid and it was really hot, only did some shopping with a couple of shops nearby. We love, love the cenote experience, it’s really incredibly cool and it’s our favorite part of the trip. Marco, our tour guide is the best, hands down. He is so knowledgeable, organized (he even has some photos to show), and really accommodating. We highly recommend this trip!
