Cozumel Peurta Maya March 10th, 2011
The day started out in Cozumel where we took the 7am ferry to Playa Del Carma and started the tour at 8am. We were happy to have a great tour guide and would not suggest doing the tour without one right in your van or bus. It was a 2 and 1/2 hour trip with one stop on the way. Our tour guide explained much of the Mayan culture and history on the way to Chichen-Itza. Our stop was at a gift shop that made their own obsidian statues. The statues turn to gold in the sunlight and when the Spanish discovered the Mayan cities that were covered in Obsidian, they though the cities were made of gold. We arrived about 11:30am and to say it was amazing is an understatement. We spent 2 and 1/2 hours in Chichen-Itza and then went for lunch where we were entrained by delightful Mexican dancers. Then off to the Cenote to cool off. Then off to Valladolid where we visited a original Spanish Church. What a great day. If you are visiting the Carebean you should visit Chichen-Itza. We arrived back at Playa Del Carma at 7:45pm and caught the 8pm Ferry back to Cozumel. Tips would be take lots of water, small change and you can buy a Obsidian statue in the Chichen-Itza for 100 to 200 pesos. Also tips are expected. Enjoy!
