This was an amazing experience and we loved every minute! Salvador is incredibly knowledgeable about the sites around the Yucatán and we learned so much about the different archeological sites and the Mayan culture. Each site and experience was beautiful and unique in its own way. We loved riding bikes in Coba, climbing Ek Balam, walking around the grounds of Uxmal and Chichen Itza, and swimming in a cenote! There were lots of other fun adventures tucked in like feeding iguanas at Tulum and visiting a hacienda and learning the history of chocolate! It was great to have evenings in Merida and Valladolid. We made lots of memories that we won’t soon forget! It was an incredible adventure!
