Questions & Answers

  • Between the ruins of Tulum or Chichen Itza, which one is a must?

    They are two visits that are very difficult to compare and both are a must on your visit to Mexico. Both are world-famous Mayan ruins, but both the tourist attraction and the type of excursions are very different. In Tulum, you can visit the ruins and spend some free time on the beach, and by 6:00 p.m. you are already at your accommodation, so you can take advantage of the rest of the day to do other activities. Chichen Itza, also very famous, is worth visiting and you can combine it with a visit to a cenote. Our recommendation is that if you have the opportunity, make time in your schedule to do both activities because they are really worth it.
  • I am still not sure which meeting point I want to go to, can I call later?

    No problem! If you are sure about it, please indicate it in the notes section when you make the reservation. If you are still not sure, don't worry. When you decide, contact us.
