First, a Mayan village
The Main Attraction
After the mayan village, it was time for the main attraction, one of the seven wonders of the world!
Here’s a little tip, when we went we knew you couldn’t take a drone, but you’re also not allowed to take in any camera stands, which we didn’t realise, luckily one of our tour guides was allowed to look after it.
Once we were through the barriers we were split into two smaller groups (English speaking group and Spanish speaking group) and assigned a tour guide. I’m not going to lie, I felt like a bit of a kid when I saw the Chichen Itza and wanted to just run around taking pictures and not listen to the tour guide as I was so excited to finally be there, however I remembered that they would give us an hour after the tour to do exactly that.
We had such an amazing tour guide and he really brought the tour to life by interacting with us and talking with us and you could tell that he too was fascinated by the amazing structures.
Open Air Cenote
After the incredible ruins of Chichen Itza we set off for an open cenote. When we got there we were offered the choice of either swimming first, or having a buffet first, we went for the buffet first. The buffet was really delicious and varied, being Muslim’s we were a bit worried about what we would be able to eat but there was plenty of tasty veggie options.
After lunch we went and got changed in the changing rooms and headed to the open-air cenoteAfter swimming in the beautiful Cenote, we got to relax in some beautifully colourful hammocks
