Just a mixed up of the actual descriotion and what will actually happened when you reach Chichen Itza already. Yes we left Cancun early, and arrive in the site 20mins before they open at 9am. Once we were inside, guide was giving his archeological guided tour but forgot to give us alone time to explore the site and visit the whole site. We were in and out. Less than and hour only inside the site,as we have to move on again to the lunchsite and cenote. Ek Balam was different, we get to enjoy the hike up the ruins as we cannot do it in Chichen Itza anymore, so Ek Balam was the highlight as you can get to experience climbing the ruin like the Mayans did centuries ago. Long drive though, spend 70% of the 11hrs of activity in driving alone. But worth to try it next time w/o the guided tour as we want to explore more next time, in our own time frame schedule.

Mina our guide was so kind and helpful. Very well organised trip. We had the chance to enjoy both Ek-Balam and Chichen Itza. Our guide to Chichen Itza was also fantastic.
