Mayan Legends by the Caribbean Sea 2

After all, Sunny Beach is not the focus of my trip. What I am really interested in are the Mayan monuments hidden in the sea and jungle around Cancun, especially the mysterious Mayan pyramids and the legends about the Quetzalcoatl.

If I go out of the hotel and will not know where to go. So i asked the hotel reception, the girl at the reception told me that if I want to see the pyramid, I can go to (Chichen-Itza), which is one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World”. Larger hotels nearby have regular tour groups. As long as the money is in place, you can save all your troubles. Since I am totally unfamiliar with Mexico, no matter how unwilling to apply for a tour group, I can only bite the bullet and pay $75 for a bus group at the hotel next door, which includes round-trip transfers to Chichen Itza, one lunch, and the whole journey. The tour guide explains. The bus is mostly European and American tourists. The uncle tour guide speaks English with a serious Spanish accent. It sounds like a tangled problem to me…

Said to go to Chichen Itza, but halfway through to another strange place to visit, an underground cave, it will cost 5 dollars to get in. The tour guide said that if you don’t want to go in, it doesn’t matter, you can wait outside for 40 minutes. I see that the surrounding tourists have spent money to go in. It is not a problem for me to stay outside by myself. It is all coming, so don’t miss the 5 dollars. Later, I chatted with a friend sitting next to me, and he told me that this kind of tour package has a discount in many places. He bought the ticket at Wal-Mart for only 60 US dollars and included this cave, which made me angry…

After a long journey, I finally arrived at the entrance of Chichen Itza. There are really many people, and they are basically European and American, and occasionally Asians.
Getting the tickets made me half angry. The fare for Chichen Itza is only 51 pesos, which is less than $5. Lao Tzu spent $75 on the tour fee and was pulled into shopping… Is it worth $70 for the round-trip fare plus a lunch?…

Finding the right hotel just got a whole lot easier -
