My fiance and I went did the Xichen Deluxe Tour with Xcaret Mexico, arranged by the Bahia Principe resort in Akumal. We were told to bring bathing suits, towels and eco-friendly sunscreen, especially if we swim in the cenotes--so as to not contaminate the water. The day of the tour, we wore our bathing suits underneath our clothes. The bus... More

A very enjoyable and informative tour. We had a short stop in Valladolid. A very beautiful spot that if we were in the area again we would love to return to. The park area opposite the Cathedral is very nice.

Very Informative and entertaining tour. The busses very nice and comfortable this is a full day tour in which breakfast and lunch are included the tour guide was entertaining, however, they try to sell you stuff like mosquito repellents etc. On the way back we stopped and got down at cenote Ik Kil which was very beautiful although crowded.

The trip to Xichen-Itza' is worth the time - it is a 12 hour day. You are picked up in a nice motor bus and if you purchased the deluxe tour, are given a boxed breakfast. Eat it, as you will need the energy- once at the site as there is a great deal of walking. WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!. The... More

Firstly they said it would take two hours from Moon palace but it took 3 hours +, the majority of the tour was the travel to and from the hotel.

I can't say enough about the personal experience of visiting a site that I had previously only seen in history books...the building are even more impressive in person! Beyond the main pyramid and the area immediately around it, be sure to make the side trip to the far side of the site to see the observatory. The good tour guides... More
