    On the 13th July, 2016, after booking at a hotel just to be able to enjoy the night show as we had done some times before, we were extremely disappointed to find out we were refused access to the night walk during “Noches de Kukulcán.”

    We waited on the queue outside until the doors were opened on time at 8 pm, meanwhile we were paying attention to the instructions offered through PA, use of flash, cell phones, night walk, etc. Once they had checked the access tickets one by one, we walked towards the main terrace.

    Once there, we were refused access to the night walk. We were told the information offered through PA by the Yucatan Government wasn’t right (on the words of the watchmen). They made us take a seat straight away and wait until 9 pm for the show to start. According to the watchmen, this was because access to the Ball Game (where the walk starts) is closed at 8.10 pm, later we were told it is closed at 8.15, finally they said we had to put up with it since it is a free event (!?). We were asking for access at 8.13 pm. There were about 80 people, most of them didn’t understand what was going on, people from Argentina, USA, Germany, Canada, Spain, Mexico…

    We have been there some other times and it is really fabulous to walk around the Pyramid of Kukulcan at night, but if the experience is going to depend on the mood of the people working there, it’s really not worth using a day of your vacation, staying at a hotel in Pisté, Valladolid or the kind, just to sit on a chair watching “a movie”. I would really like to know if anything will be done about it. Both Quintana Roo and Yucatan have so much to offer to make us waste our time (and money!) this way. Organization and attitude are awful, which is really sad.
