Today would be the day that I would visit the final Wonder of the
The day began when I awoke at 6 to be ready to leave the
hostel at 7AM. I met up with two new friends from South Korea and
France. By 7:40AM we were concerned that our ride hadn't showed. When
it did we were relieved, but just for a moment for as quickly as we
boarded the van we were then kicked off. Apparently the hostel couldn't
find the money we had paid so they could then pay for our tour on our
behalf. On top of that, the only hostel worker could not speak spanish
and he couldn't contact the owner. Our van left without us. Five
minutes later a co-owner pulled in and we finally convinced him to drive
us to the meeting point. We hopped into his jalopy of a car and we
were on our way...for a minute. Then he decided to stop for gas. Ok,
so then we were on our way. We arrived to the meeting point 20 minutes
later only to find that the bus was fully loaded and ready to pull away.
We quickly got on board and left on a 2 hour ride. I had the chance
to talk with my new friends and we met another guy from Italy.
first stop was at a cenote. It was beautiful but unfortunately it was a
commercial area with loads of people getting on and off buses. It
wasn't nearly as inviting as the cenote I visited a couple of days
earlier. I opted for a few Mexican beers instead.
