**** ALL INCLUSIVE TOUR ****

We will start late, so you are able to sleep long and enjoy the morning in your hotel. We will pick you up between the late forenoon and mid-day and will drive to a wonderful cenote for bathing, swimming, and having fun. Trough a long stairway downstairs, we will reach the waterline where the water is really refreshing and will invite you for a bath. A small waterfall falls over the border of the cenote to the inner, brave guests can use a small diving platform, all others can use stairs into the water. We will have enough time for taking wonderful pictures, relaxing, and enjoying.

 

After that, we will visit a typical ancient hacienda and have dinner. The big buffet is full of typical sweet meats and we can prepare ourselves for the evening. Together, we will enjoy our dinner and we will get to know each other a little bit more.

 

After the delicious meal, we will drive to the spanish colonial city Valladolid, where we will do a small walk over the market place. We have time for the flair of the cathedrale and for watching the bustle on the small market or taking pictures. Explore this lovely, spanish colonial city.

 

Then, we will drive to Chichén Itzá and look forward to the spectacle, which is waiting for us. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Chichén Itzá is the most important and best-kown Mayan archaeological site on the Yucatán Penísula and is visited by thousands of tourists every day. Enjoy the tranquility of this mystical place while our English-speaking guide explains everything about the ruined city, telling the stories about the Mayan people. In the meantime, the sky gets dark and we will have time to admire the illuminated highlight of Chichén Itzá and take pictures. We will take our seats for the light and sound show on the breath-taking Kukulkan pyramid and will be part of the Mayan history.
