The world famous iconic #pyramid is in the #Yucatan.
It is way better to go there from #Valladolid
rather than from Merida.
It is much closer,
and there are plenty of good places to stay in.
Valladolid is such a nice relaxed pretty little town,
so it's worth going.
Plus, there are a lot more gorgeous #cenotes there.
If you want to go to the pyramid with no annoying crowd around:
any marked collectivo mini van
they're usually parked by a curb,
just ask to make sure.
Collectivo: around 35 pesos.
Time it takes on collectivo: 45min
Time of arrival at the gate: 7:50 a.m.
All pyramid sites open at : 8 a.m.
(which is stupid. Make it earlier!)
Entry Ticket cost: 45 pesos
Federal tax: 172 pesos
(a separate ticket you have to get)
Ticket for action cam / drones : 45 pesos
(so just keep yours in your bag / pocket,
don’t carry it visibly to ticketing staff.)
The site is pretty much yours to enjoy from 8a.m.
and people will start coming in more from 9:30a.m.
Crowds gather in large number from 10 a.m.
