  • I found good to hire a tour in downtown merida 525 pesos includes transportation and food does not include entrance to park or light and sound if you're Mexican you get discount and students at entrance to the pyramids and the master insen give discount, is tired and more with young children that you end up loading it you must carry water repellent hat and good condition the normal sound and light show hardly enjoy it be entertaining to my 2-year-old girl
