Excellent Tour!!

Our tour guide Rosendo first guided us through the Cenote and it was amazing to see this wonderful place. It was scary to swim in this deep water though!! Then, we visited the city of Chichen Itzá and there we learned lots of interesting facts about the Mayan culture and the archaeological structures we saw there. We had a buffet lunch, it was so delicious. We even tasted some handmade tortillas prepared at the moment. Really worth the waiting time!
