Chichen Itza and the Pink pools

5 reviews
We will start this beautiful day picking you up at the meeting point, the goal is arrive to Chichen Itza early, since is the most visited archaeological site. As soon as it´s open (8:00 am) we will have the chance to enjoy the place with less people, have better pictures and take advantage of the refreshing morning. We will stop in a convenience store to grab something to eat. Inside the archaeological site i will explain you the customs, history, and life of the mayan civilization and the city. Afterwards we will drive to a cenote (natural sinkholes) where we´ll have enough time to swimm and cool off in the crystal clear waters of this amazing natural ecosystem. Afterwards we will drive to a little town and eat in a local restaurant where we can find a great variaty of local food and vegetarian options as well. Then we will hit the road again towards north, this time we will visit the salt mines where we can observe the wonderful pink pools and the pink flamingos that inhabit in the biosphere reserve.

This French-style boulevard is over a mile long and is flanked by late 19th century, early 20th century mansions that reflect the economic power that was generated by the "Yucatan green gold", that is, the henequen trade whose origins was in the lovely haciendas that surround the Yucatan state. The boulevard is filled with quaint places to enjoy some coffee or a typical shake you will find nowhere else in the world and which is called a "champola".....you should not miss the Helados Colon. It's quite fortunate that there are many trees planted along the way and you can access complimentary wifi. You can also find a museum (Museo de Antropologia) which will give you interesting insights into the Mayan culture. I would allow at least 1 hour to visit the museum, probably a couple of hours would be more suitable if you really wish to get into it. They have a little street market at the beginning of the Paseo Montejo every Friday and Saturday evening where you can secure some souvenirs and crafts at reasonable prices. Some haggling is fine, just don't over do it.

Great place to go for a walk if you’re staying nearby. Great restaurants and atmosphere. Very safe. Must visit the museums in that area and take a picture in the fountain.
