We met some new friends in Merida who persuaded us to stay the night at the Mayaland Hotel with them during our visit to Chichen Ixta. How lucky we were to have this experience. Visit Chichen Ixta, but stay awhile...
We arrived at the Mayaland after our tour for the BEST barbeque and buffet of our whole trip to the Yucatan. We went back the second day at lunch before we returned to Merida.
We had a very intimate dinner with serenading local gentleman that evening followed by the best shots of tequila in the bar before going to bed. The young man bartending shared local stories with us.
I had the best nights sleep of my nine days in Mexico there...maybe the jungle vibe contributed to it. The grounds are immaculate, the furnishings ethnic, the pools fantastic.
We went to the LIGHT show that evening at Chichen Ixta and took the private walk and entrance from the Hotel. It was Magical. The next morning, we were able to go back into the archeological site early in the morning. I will never forget this Mayan experience. I would love to return again. Don't miss it.
