It was really an amazing trip. The guide was kind and gave us lots of information. The site is small but like a gem. The acropolis is a great piece of mayan architecture. The second part in Cenote Maya was fun. Rappeling into the Cenote... OMG! The staff and the car was good. Only the pictures were a bit expensive. Score: Recommend: YES Aug 3, 2017
