Chichen Itza was one of the largest Maya cities in the State of Yucatan, (800 A.D) it belongs to the Seven Wonders, I was there last summer, and it is a magical site, it was crowded, I have to say it was very hot, even and so I enjoyed because it is full of history. There is also a “cenote” it is a type of “lake” that you can only find them in Mexico.
China beach in Vietnam, you can find it from Hue to Hoi An it is worth it to see it, very nice, also round boats, normally you don´t find them in Europe.
The previous night I slept in Page, it is a village with beautiful houses, where you can see a people with a lot of boats, because of the Lake Powell it is next to it, I went to the Horseshoe Bend, It was very hot but it was worth it to see, in this point where you can see the curve of the Colorado River, it is an astonishing landscape.
Enjoying the beaches of Cuba..
If you want to travel to Cuba, one of the cheapest way to sleep is renting a room in the cubano´s house. Normally you can find big houses with big rooms and especially very important if they have air conditioning. In this case this house was in Pinar del Rio. They like to paint their houses in different colours, the furniture it is normally old, because of their political conditions they cannot get better facilities.
Going to Pinar del Río from Viñales, through the route 241. The distance is about 28 kms. With the roads in Cuba sometimes it is difficult to planify due to the bad conditions of the road. In this occasion it took about 2 hours to get there, especially because was getting dark, and there is no light at all.
