Highs & Lows
Playa Delfines is a place not to be missed, just like the Cenotes
Distances are a bit complicated
We left Bogotá, Colombia to Cancún, a place full of magic and plans.
To get there we took a flight with Copa Airlines, which made a stopover in Panamá for 4 hours, I recommend taking a direct flight because we arrived in Cancún late at night and it complicates the logistics a little, luckily we bought the all inclusive package and the hotel picked us up at the airport just at the time of arrival, and everything started to be great, we arrived at the hotel Emporio, which is a 5 star all inclusive, has a wonderful view of the beach, The food at the hotel is really fabulous, there are all kinds of food for all tastes which is a great plus because personally I do not like spicy or spicy food, also the pools are quite large and comfortable for all heights, green areas, gym, souvenir store and supermarket and best of all with the beach right in front.
In México we had the opportunity to visit several places among them, Isla Mujeres, to get there we had to take a very comfortable ferry for about 1 hour, it was a spectacular experience, we saw the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, it cost us about 20 USD per person, once we disembarked we spent a fabulous day there, touring the island in a golf cart, from north to south and vice versa, the beaches of this island were a little dirty by algae, but we enjoyed them to the fullest because the Mexican attention is unmatched.
We also had the opportunity to walk around Chichen Itza, this is a mandatory trip if you go through the Riviera Maya, because you can find Cenotes which are large natural pools of crystal clear water, swimming there feels magnificent and the best thing is that on the way to Chichen Itza there are many where you can swim.
After passing through there we arrive to the great pyramids and ancestral Mayan constructions, which are all a monument, my favorite place is the "Ball Game" of Chichen Itza where the ancient Mayas made great "championships" of this game, The field present in Chichen Itza measures 170 meters long and 70 meters wide. The objective of the game was to pass the ball through stone hoops on each side of the court, using only the hips.
There are many restaurants to visit there, you can eat on the beach and enjoy the beautiful views, you can have a refreshing drink on the north end of the island in front of the sunset.
