Hotel Chichen Itza
Travel Blogs from Chichén Itzá
Most people won´t know where Piste is. It is the town just outside of the Chichen Itza ruins. We took a bus here this morning. We got here at about noon. By the time we were ready to walk away from the hotel they had our room ready, 3 hours early.
We went up and unpacked. We then walked into town. Found a local chicken shack and had lunch …
Tuesday we took the second class bus
from Cancun to Piste. Piste is 1 km from Chichen Itza and
unbelievably is very undeveloped considering how close it is to one
of the new 7 Wonders of the World. The bus ride took 4.5 hours (by
car it's a 2 hour drive). But, we stopped in every little village,

I don't think the hotel is affiliated with BW anymore. It was a nice place, friendly staff, good price and an awesome location. It is 1 km from Chichen Itza - about 35 pesos by taxi. The town was quiet and the food was good and inexpensive. A nice laid back place to stay.
