Resting in Cancun and not going to Chichen Itza - it's just barbarity. The tour is combined, it gives an opportunity to get acquainted with the typical colonial town of Valladolid, explore Chichen Itza and visit and swim in the Ik-Kil cenote. When you are in Chichen Itza, one immediately recalls Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. Be sure to choose a tour with a visit to Ik Kiel cenote.

Started with Valladolid. Our tour guide Ricardo was very knowledgeable and his narrations were interesting and kept the audience engaged. On our way to Chichen Itza, we stopped at a Mayan village. Souvenirs were pricey, apparently more authentic. Food had limited options for vegetarians like us. The main attraction Chichen Itza lived up to its hype. Medium who was our official guide at the site did not have the benefit of a mic and a speaker system and had to speak at the top of her voice to be heard by the large group. She was very informative. We almost got lost after the tour. It's good to stay with the group even though free time is given to explore on your own. You can do souvenir shopping where you stay either Cancun or Mayan Riviera. Ik Kil Cenote wrapped up a fantastic day tour. Wish we had more time at Ik Kil to enjoy the refreshing water. Ricardo gave a list of things tourists generally leave behind and it was very useful. We were picked up on time and overall, time and money well spent on this tour.

It was an amazing tour and very educational. Through this tour, you will engage with and experience many Mayan culture. Chichen Itza is definitely worth a visit while you are here.
