Seeing Chichen Itza the second time around wasn’t that exciting anymore. The feeling I had the first time I laid my eyes on this Wonder of the World was gone. I went there to accompany a friend (aka his tour guide and photographer) who has never seen it. I’m not sure if he was really impressed but we were busy taking each other’s photos. Serious poses, I tell you – with props! 😀 And besides, thick balls of cloud were hovering above us, so we had to get moving. However, we were not in a hurry. We figured out the time on how long we stay in each destination. We hired a car and went on a road trip for a day. This time, I wasn’t backpacking. I was traveling in a comfort of an all-inclusive hotel deal. Yes, it’s not me, but, I sure deserve a soft bed and lavish buffet one week in a year, right? 😀 Not to mention a two-hour and a half exclusive yacht experience, cruising the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
This is my third time on the eastern part of Mexico. The first time I was here, I stayed at an all-inclusive Grand Sirenis Beach Resort Riviera Maya in Tulum. The second time was at . And in this trip, we stayed at .
Of course, if you’re not into all-inclusive vacations but cheaper options, you can always book hostels to suit your tight budget. But, I had to warn you that Cancun is a vacationer’s paradise, not a backpacker’s dream destination. The city, however, is a good base for your cultural sightseeing, like the Chitchen Itza and Tulum Ruinas. Cancun is also accessible to Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.
