Great experience. Tour guide is a must to learn about it. Getting to it is easy.
We did it buy rental car. Used Hertz - full cover rental. Easy drive on the highway. 2 Hours - tolls are about 50 bucks all up but no big deal.
Much better than being stuck on a bus for hours if you don't mind driving. Get there before the buses. I loved it but wouldn't spend hours there. Check it out learn about it and then see the cenote and swim and then back in time for a shower.. dinner at the hotel and maybe catching some night entertainment at the resort.
You can pick up some coasters or some random memorabilia from there. the stuff is so cheap, those poor people are just trying to survive. Do you really have to bargain? I mean really ? :)
I bought some coasters and He said 15 US and it was wayyy too much but really does it matter in the scheme of things. I think he was shocked that I paid him what he said. It probably goes along way for him.
