I recently was able to strike something off my bucket list, I finally made it to Chichen Itza.
I am a huge fan of Mayan Ruins and one of my biggest regrets is not going to Tikal while I was in Guatemala, so you would think when I was in Merida I would not make the same mistake twice… but I did and did not go to Chichen Itza.
So when the opportunity came up for me to go to Chichen Itza on the cruise, I jumped on the opportunity. I am always chasing UNESCO sites and this was absolutely no different.
In a word? It was amazing. I mean sure I have seen so many pictures of it and I knew what to expect but seeing something I have always wanted to see in person was super exciting & like I said… I love Mayan ruins.
I also got to ride through Merida which is probably my favorite city in Mexico.
If you find yourself in Merida or on a cruise to Progresso I can’t encourage this trip enough. It is a bit pricey and it is a 2 hour ride to the ruins but if you like ancient civilizations and the Maya I can’t recommend it enough.
I highly recommend you get their early because the crowds can get large and you will have to do some crazy angles to avoid people… or you will have a bunch of people in your photo 🙂
