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.

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 …

from Cancun to Piste. Piste is 1 km from Chichen Itza and
unbelievably is very undeveloped considering how close it is to one

People waving down cars trying to entice them to eat at their place. It’s a ...
... dance - with beer bottles balanced on their heads, random, but quite clever. Then, finally at 3pm (!!!) what this whole day (of faffing about so far) was supposed to be - Chichen itza! The entrance was lined with stalls selling the usual tourist fare - magnets, t shirts, odd status, masks etc. At the end of the row, you are right out infront of it - the main Castillo pyramid! It was surprisingly quiet in the grounds - I was expecting hoards of people, but there weren't at ...
... you could get a slave. The tasting part probably lasted twice as long as the tour. After tasting bitter 100% Mayan chocolate, we were given every possible of combination of chocolate with something...honey, chilli, milk, ginger etc. All very tasty and supposedly healthy being all organic, but David drew the line when she showed him the Chocolate Shampoo...ahh, it's not for drinking...the tequila from earlier was not helping!!
