    Aug 23rd through the 30th

    Wife and I will be there on Aug 23rd through the 30th. I just found out today as a complete surprise. This will be our second trip and really enjoyed our trip last summer. It's a great place and an even better beach!

    Guys, I'm there with my son (Graduation present) and we all can be the party starters. My first time here (5 times at Temptation), figured I ease him in to the Cancun thang. Norm

    Wally....

    Our friend Bob is coming to join us and he just face booked us and mention he really wanted to go Chichen Itza. I'm thinking about it too. Hubby wants to stay behind. He has already been. Let us know if you are still planning on going? we are at the GP from 23rd (arrive) to 30th.

    Hey Marc/Reba & Bob...
    I'm traveling by myself & will arrive to GP the evening of the 28th and hoping to go to Chichen Itza on Thursday the 29th. I haven't booked anything yet but it looks like it'll be most of the day. Let me know if the 29th works for you, I'd enjoy the company!

    Wally, I'll check with Bob. I see no reason why the 29th shouldn't work for us. Do we need to pre register / pay? Just let me know what we need to do. Sounds like fun. Rebs

    Reba - Check these tour packages out and see if you have a preference. Any of them are fine with me. They seem pretty similar; depart hotel between 7-8AM and back between 7-8PM, $47-$69/per person. I think we should probably book ahead to secure our spots on the tour.

    Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun - Cancun | Viator

    Chichen Itza Deluxe Tour from Cancun

    Tour impressive Mayan ruins, proving to be the most advanced.

    The Gray Line tour doesn't look like it includes the Chichen Itza entrance fee but the other 2 do. Might be an additional $15-$20.

    Let me know what you think and let's get booked & go!

    Wally :)

    I just facebooked Bob.. Hope to hear back today. All three look good to me. I kind of like the menu better on Gray line. I love mexican food. Our hotel doesn't offer it :( Do you know if the sister location has mexican food?I might need to go into Cancun and look for some - anyways. I will get back to you as soon as I hear. Do you have a preference?

    I was actually leaning towards the Gray Line so I'm good with that choice.

    I love Mexican food too and am disappointed Golden doesn't offer any. I just checked Great's website and they have a restaurant called El Maguey that says it's "traditional Mexican cuisine" Menu -> http://www.parnassusresorts.com/d/greatresorts/media/PDFs/Menu_El_Maguey_Restaurant.pdf

    Just saw the weather forecast for the 24th - 31st. I hope it improves. It looks like clouds and some rain every single day.

    Just my 2 cents, but in August it can get pretty hot that far inland. In June '12 we opted for the Chichen Itza night show tour. At that time it was only available on Wednesday nights. We got to swim in the Ik Kil cenote (which is amazing), we then ate lunch and proceeded to Chichen Itza. It gave us plenty of daylight to explore the grounds then at dusk you sit in chairs as they illuminate the ruins and describe historical aspects of the site.
    I also highly recommend the tour organized by Entertainment-plus.
