A must do excursion! Poncho was our guide, he could not have been better. He was knowledgeable without over talking. The drive out was early, so he gave us quiet time my children slept and then started to give us historical info and useful tips when we were about on hour from the destination. The site was amazing. Poncho kept the information coming, terrific. It is quite hot there, so a hat is practically mandatory. If you did not bring one, they are sold on your way into the park and even once you are in. Probably more variety if you buy within the park from the many vendors. The stop at the cenote was terrific. Don't forget a towel, but leave it in a locker. If you jump into the cenote from the upper level, hold your nose I should have, but it wasn't too bad. It is a magical looking place! Bring a waterproof holder for your phone so you can take pictures and video. The lunch buffet was decent. Valladolid was nice, the history with the paintings was interesting. I did not need to shop the whole time, probably a good time to get a cold drink or some icecream. I highly recommend this excursion!
The tour at Chichen Itza was great. Had our own tour guide for English folks. The cenote was absolutely beautiful. I have been to many before, but this one was quite striking. Didn't really see the point of going to Valladolid. I'm not a shopper so maybe that was the problem. All in all, a great day.
