The Top Excursion that our Guest request is a visit to a Mayan Ruin.

Chichen Itza

I usually advise people to go to Chichen Itza it's now one of the 7 wonders of the world, it's an educational excursion for the kids, a sight you will always remember and an essential item on anyone's bucket list.

Most trips include an optional stop at Ikil Cenote; this is where the Mayan mined the limestone that they used to build Chichen-Itza, it's also a great place for a swim to cool off on your way back!

However it takes a bit of commitment; it's a day out of your vacation, the drive time and Guided tour is not for young children whom will be restless and bored, not the best terrain for strollers, it's Hot in the Summer; you're in the sun not shade most of the time and the tour might be difficult for those whom have trouble walking or standing for long periods of time.

Tulum

If you want to see a Mayan Ruin but maybe “Not That Into It“ then I suggest Tulum it's only an hour away from the villas, while it lacks the all-inspiring Mayan Pyramid of Chichen Itza, it is right on the ocean and has a quite spirituality to it. A nice day trip is a few hours at Tulum then the afternoon at Xel-Ha; the "Snorkelers Haven" which is a short drive from Tulum, you can do both and be done and back to the villa late afternoon or early evening or stop on the way back at Playa Del Carmen for dinner.

Coba

If your “All About Seeing the Mayan Ruins“ then you can combined a trip to Chichen Itza and Coba together, Coba has the tallest Mayan Pyramid in the Yucatan; although Coba is not as well known as Chichen Itza it's also not as crowded!

Coba has the feeling of a Real Mayan village located in the jungle encircled by four lakes it covers over 80 sq. miles, however only a small section has structures that have been restored for tourist. At one time it was the home to more than 45,000 Mayans and was a central hub between the coast areas and the Mayan cities in the Yucatan.

There are several options to seeing the Mayan RuinsFYI: Mexican Nationals get into the Mayan Ruins for Free on Sundays, so you want to avoid the crowds pick another day!
