I feel sorry for this show, first...

I feel sorry for this show, first, it's all in spanish... and we DO not understand spanish...while the how show is conversations between people, the only word understanding of the show to me is 'Chaac...Chaac...' and the light is soso.
Augosto the guide was great. The ruins are magnificent. The light show is very disappointing. Just colorful lights projections on the buildings with dramatic narration in Spanish. No headphones with English translation were supplied. I had enough after 5 minutes but had 40 minutes to go.
EL servicio fue muy bueno. Nos sorprendió que en el mismo autobús, con el mismo guía y con el mismo servicio de comida pagamos el doble de lo que pagaron otros viajeros que compraron el tour con otras agencias de viaje. Algo está mal, pues por el mismo servicio pagamos el doble.
