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 …

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

Given the high profile of the site, we hired an official tour guide off the books for ...
... and funny. And wouldn't you know it, Flavio was a back up dancer for a Michael Jackson tribute performing group for 5 years. Talk about having a common interest!
Luckily the wedding is not until 5:00pm tomorrow, so there will be no alarm set for tomorrow. We are just going to wake up when our internal alarms get us up, eat some breakfast. and relax at the pool and beach up until the wedding. I know, it is a rough life for us right now.
... We got back into town and explore a bit more in the day light. We had to book our bus out to Tulum as we wanted to meet up with a friend from London called Tam who is also doing a big trip through South and Central America and this is the first time we have been moderately close to each other. So after a busy day running about we jumped on a bus down to Tulum looking forward to a friendly face and maybe a few tequilla as well!
