Very good trip with some restrictions
Chichen-Itza, Cenote Ik-Kil, Rio Lagartos, Las Coloradas Private Tour with lunch | Feb 2020
We got picked up by Miguel in a private car at our lobby. We showed up 15 minutes before the scheduled time (6:15am) and he was already waiting for us. We then drove off towards Yucatan - Las Coloradas. On the highway we stopped at a small restaurant and ate some breakfast (paid by ourselves, wasn‘t expensive). At Las Coloradas, we have been able to visit the pink Salt Salines and got accomplished by a local. The local took some great pictures and our tour-guide paid the tip! Toilets at Las Coloradas costs 5 Pesos. After that, we drove 5 Minutes to Rio Lagartos. We entered the private speed boat and drove to a spot where we‘ve seen an Alligator. Our boat driver had some fishes to feed the Alligator. We then drove to a sandbank where we‘ve seen Flamingos, Pelicans and walked through a clay field. We then drove to the village of Rio Lagartos, where Miguel was waiting in his car. After a stop at a small grocery store to buy some drinks, we went to the Cenotes. The Cenote is beautiful to see, but it was definitely too crowded for us. We only spent about 5 minutes down there and then went for „lunch“ at 3pm. After Lunch, we visited Chichen Itza. Unfortunately we didn‘t have much time left, so we hurried through the site in only 1.5hrs. Nevertheless, Miguel was able to explain everything to our full satisfaction.
- Cenote was too crowded
- Only one bottle of water was provided, the rest was pid by ourselves
- Drinks for lunch at Cenote is not included
- Ability to schedule the tour to our needs
- Miguel is a Mayan and knows the history
- Miguel is a very friendly and honest guide, thank you!
- See a lot of things in a short amount of time (it takes 2-3 days if booked separately)
Overall it is an expensive excursion, but worth the money....Read more
