... before we reached the entrance to the archaeological site. The admission fee was very expensive (MXN 188 per person) but we weren't surprised as we had read about it before. At about 11.15 we were ready to begin our self-guided tour around the Mayan ruins of Uxmal. It was obviously possible to hire a private guide for MXN 600 (Spanish) or MXN 700 (other languages) but we preferred to follow our own rhythm and save USD 45!

... drive into the Chichen Itza town for a buffet lunch. This was a very nice buffet, they had a good mix of salads, hot dishes and fruit with deserts.
