This picture was taken by me while I was in a plane with the destination to Cancún, Quintana Roo. There are so many beautiful things to see full of Mexican culture and history. The white sanded beaches make you feel in true paradise and the turquoise water makes you want to stay in it forever.
I stayed near Tulum, Quintana Roo. Which is a place 1 hour and 30 minutes away from Cancun’s International Airport.
Some places I was lucky to visit where:
1. Chichén- Itzá. One of the Seven Wonders of the World.
A true mayan place that contains pyramids, cenotes, ball courts and observatories. The mayan city is full of nature and once you have been inside it you are able to feel the magic the pyramids give. You can’t help but wonder how people lived and stepped where you are thousands of years ago.
What is also amazing is the precision in which the pyramids and other constructions where made.
I really recommend if it is your first time there to get a tour guide and one that gives an air of experience, because some of them will tell lies just to get money. I had one named Lupito (short for Guadalupe). He knew many dates, concepts and information that was really useful for us. Although he did have storytelling and other things that were not true, most of what he told was accurate.
If you are mexican there is a special fee in which you pay less, the only thing you need to take with you is an Identification (passport, INE, driver’s license). Students (present an identification from school), children under 13 and seniors do not pay tickets. Mexicans do not may tickets on Sundays.
My next post is about the mayan city of Cobá. Stay tuned!
