We got bikes at Bike Zaci near the hotel Sol Colonial for around $1 an hour. I do love that ride through the city, into the outskirts, and down dirt country roads out to the cenote. We paid the $5 each to get in, which included a $2.50 credit in the restaurant. We swam and swung out hearts out in that Cenote until we were ready to come up to have nachos by the pool. Even though we were drenched for the better part of the day it was excellent fun.
After some shopping and a rest we went to dinner at Canato 1920, sort of a Latin fusion situation. The food was good and the atomosphere funky and artistic.
For our last day, the sun finally came out and brought a 20 degree increase in temperatures. I think I'd rather have the rain that the draining heat. Regardless, we carried on with today's plan of getting an early start to the taxi stand for rides to Ek Balam and X Canche. The ride costs about $2.50 each person and takes about 30 minutes. After buying tickets we got the usual low key tour guide sell, but we declined since we really just wanted to go to the main pyramid for a climb.
We actually got through the site in about an hour. From the ruins it's a short walk to lay for the "complete package" which included a bicycle taxi 1.5 km to and from the cenote, 2 turns on the zip line across the top of the cenote. a repel down, unlimited time swimming, and 3 turns on the low zip line just above the water.
Maya did this 40 foot jump last year, but this time she did it with much less hesitation.
It was all as beautiful and as fun as I remembered from last year and cost about $20 per person. We headed back to the parking lot around noon to get a taxi back to Valladolid. We spent the afternoon shopping and eating, and more eating since wee knew we would be heading back home tomorrow.
Really going to miss this place and so glad Jennifer wanted to go. We have so many good memories of our time, I'm so grateful!
