My love for travelling goes back to my early memories of my mom driving us on various road trips. In 2017, we travelled to Cancun together. It was amazing especially our excursion to Chichen Itza. The sun was beaming and we were feeling HOT!, HOT!, HOT! Chichen Itza is approx 3.5 hours from Cancun and is located on Mexico Yucatan Peninsula. Although the drive was long, it was worth it. If Cancun is not your destination, I would suggest booking a hotel closer. The bus tour included pickup, drop off and a meal. There was an array of cuisines, desserts, salads, and drinks to make you forget all about your New Year’s resolution.

Mayan Civilization: Chichen Itza

Cenote Pit

“A cenote is a natural sinkhole filled with fresh water. It was formed when the limestone bedrock collapsed into the fresh groundwater. With its extensive underground river systems, the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico is the world’s best place to experience and explore cenotes.”

The Ruins and Cenote are a must when visiting Yucatan Peninsula. The ruins provide a glimpse into the Mayan archeological history and the Cenote pit will charm you on a hot day with its clear, calm, cool blue water. Making it very hard to resist. If the Cenote is not your cup of tea, you have the option of walking or boating through the caves.
