Our favorite Part was Marcela our guide! She made the trip so fun! She was so knowledgeable and never once rushed us and answered every question that we had! We even got to see a local village and get more culture about Ek Balam! I would recommend this to anyone and make Sure you have Marcela to guide you and Noah to drive you! We also have fun swimming in the Cenote!
