Pisté is one of the populations that acquire presence in the traveler's map because of its proximity to the jewel in the crown of the Yucatan Peninsula, the wonderful Chichen Itza. A strategic stop on the road.

You can not talk about Pisté without doing it from Chichén Itzá. This Wonder of the Modern World places Pisté on the traveler map, but probably it would be a population more than the road that connects Mérida with Cancún.

Why sleep in Pisté?

The few 3 kilometers that separate Pisté from the main entrance to Chichén Itzá, makes it an appealing destination for those travelers who want to sleep near the ruins. Chichén Itzá, like most archaeological zones of payment, opens to the 8 in the morning. It is an excellent time to access Chichén for several reasons: one is that you will get rid of Yucatecan heat, with maximums from April to August, and another is that you will avoid the floods of groups of tourists coming from the Riviera Maya and Merida. It is also a good opportunity to see the light and sound show of the nights of Kukulcán, in winter time at 19 hours and in summer at 20 hours.

To Chichen we go all types of travelers, it is difficult to say no to the jewel of the Peninsula. Within the wide range of wildlife, are those of tourist circuits and independent travelers those who they stay in Pisté. This allows you, without waking up at odd hours, to be at the 8 entering Chichén Itzá.

Where to stay in Pisté?

In the surroundings of Pisté you will see several hotels where to stay Most of these hotels away from the urban core are designed to receive circuit tourists and travelers by car, offering all kinds of facilities in the hotel: swimming pool, restaurant service, small souvenir shop. The most privileged of the area are the two who have direct access to Chichén Itzá, the The Lodge at Chichen Itza and Hotel & Bungalows Mayaland. Staying in them means you do not line up at the main entrance; from the hotel you get your ticket and access is through an alternative entrance.

The people of Pisté It offers several alternatives in the mere village, ideal for travelers who move on public transport. It cost me to find a place that would convince me to sleep, until I knew the inn Casa de las Lunas, place that goes unnoticed hidden behind a sign on the main street. A surprisingly beautiful garden welcomes comfortable rooms, with excellent value for money and fantastic service. My recommendation comes with personal thanks: Christmas 2015 was traveling alone through Yucatan, the 24 slept in the House of the Moons. That afternoon they came to get me to my room to invite me to their table, they had put one more chair for me the owners. Those details of heart make way, the nice gestures humanize making us better.
