Chichen Itza and the Pink pools

6 reviews
We will start this beautiful day picking you up at the meeting point, the goal is arrive to Chichen Itza early, since is the most visited archaeological site. As soon as it´s open (8:00 am) we will have the chance to enjoy the place with less people, have better pictures and take advantage of the refreshing morning. We will stop in a convenience store to grab something to eat. Inside the archaeological site i will explain you the customs, history, and life of the mayan civilization and the city. Afterwards we will drive to a cenote (natural sinkholes) where we´ll have enough time to swimm and cool off in the crystal clear waters of this amazing natural ecosystem. Afterwards we will drive to a little town and eat in a local restaurant where we can find a great variaty of local food and vegetarian options as well. Then we will hit the road again towards north, this time we will visit the salt mines where we can observe the wonderful pink pools and the pink flamingos that inhabit in the biosphere reserve.

Really interesting tour of the hacienda and the old process of making hemp and rope. Great personnel and really good and price worthy food. The hotel is currently closed due to Covid, but will hopefully open soon. The cenote was really beautiful and the water was crystal clear. The little rail car, drawn by a mule, was another cool experience.

Last month, my wife and I enjoyed a full visit to this Living Hacienda. We booked our tour well in ahead of time, but until a couple of days before, we were uncertain whether or not the Hacienda was still open for visitors, since the Covid-19 pandemic was just coming to the region. Fortunately, and after some problems, the hacienda staff confirmed our reservations the day before. We took a combination tour, Hacienda, Cenote and Lunch. Needless to say, we enjoyed it thoroughly. It was instructive to learn about the history of the Sisal production and rope-making traditions. It was great to watch the machinery involved in the fiber production work at full capacity. My wife received a rope, freshly corded and twisted as a souvenir. The mule rail ride was amusing, as were the conversations with the workers and our tour guide. It was a marvelous experience to descend to the Cenote, and enjoy the works of nature carving the small cave and lagoon. It is impressive also to observe how some trees on the surface are able to drop their roots through the rock down to the water in the lagoon. Some people in the group enjoyed a dip in its waters. I would say that the lunch included in the tour was only average in quality and service. But the fish we had was excellently, prepared in a high-cuisine style. My "Azteca Soup" tasted overcooked. The cost of the tours is considerable, but well worth it. The tour was very well conducted and organized. My wife and I had no qualms about recommending it to anyone coming the Merida area.

This hacienda has been been carefully restored including maintaining and operating Sisal machinery and methods. The historical importance of Sisal to the region of Yucatan is wonderfully well explained. Demonstrations of the machinery to produce Sisal are well done and the trip to the cenote for a swim was a treat. We stayed for lunch at the restaurant and were very pleased with the food and service.

This hacienda is a working farm for producing sisal fiber, with examples of all the tools, equipment and machinery used to grow and harvest this historically important fiber. I’ll let them tell you about the name of this fiber and the twine it produces when you get there! A bonus activity that comes highly recommended on your tour of the hacienda is the cenote (underground pool) located on the grounds.
