G&D presents…Chichen Itza

Our 1st wedding anniversary! Wiii! Chichen Itza Tour from Viator
Our Tour Guide…Marcos Antonio with his gang David and Luis from Ekinox Tours.

Marc Anthony (one of his nicknames) gave us a lot of information about the place and the community. From how the pyramids were made by the Mayans, to how they started the sciences of Mathematics, Astronomy, and many more. And Marcos’s ancestors are the Mayans themselves.

First stop… Souvenir Shop. Run by Mayan people living in the area.

Just an FYI:

-Got GoPro or Adventure Cameras? You need to pay 45 Pesos for you to use it.

-Bring Sunblock and hat/umbrella, especially when the sun is really out when you visit the place. If you don’t have, the site itself has stores (near the entrance) where you can buy sunblock, and you can also rent an umbrella for 20 pesos.

-EKNX Tour provides a bottle of water for you on the bus before you start the tour. Or you can just bring your own water which you think will be enough for the whole day.
