Cabanas near ruins and cenotes
Posted Aug 21, 2016
Overall, it was alright. Let me first clarify, I like roughing it a little bit. I was slightly disappointed that before arrival, no attempt to sweep bugs off the floor or remove them from the bed or mosquito net had been made. We stayed despite this. That being said, two backpackers checked in next door and immediately demanded a refund and left because their room was "bad" (in their words) - no idea what it looked like relative to ours. Anyways, it is the only place I've ever been where I slept on top of the bed. The villagers were nice. We had the problem that we spoke very broken Spanish. I do not recommend staying here if you do not speak Spanish well. No food was available at our hotel. We went to the hotel with the Italian restaurant for dinner - no one else was there.
Also, slightly misleading posts about distance to the ruins. We rented bikes from the hotel. Very old, uncomfortable bikes for 100 pesos for two. It was a 10-15 minute bike ride to the site. Not a 5 minute walk as others have suggested.
It was an experience. I'm glad we did it. Though I'm not sure I will personally do it again.
