Chichen Itza and Yokdzonot Day Trip

On a bright sunny day, leaving Progreso nice and early, my guests and I and our magical driver Saul headed out to Chichen Itza for a day of sightseeing and touring the magnificent ruins, arriving just in time before the herds of tourists from Cancun arrived and the pesky trinket salespeople were still setting up their Juan Dolla (one dollar) tables with goods brought from Mexico City and probably China as well, from what I have heard.

Always interesting is the creativity put into attracting visitors attention that the vendors display. Some of the more commonly heard come-ons are "Almost free", "Only one dollar", and the omnipresent "Good price for you my friend", said with a confidence and heavy Mexican accent; less common are such gems as "Cheaper than Walmart" and "How much you wanna pay?"

Enjoy the photos!
