After hearing some horror stories, I was very nervous about the local guides. Apparently they often just tell you bogus stories! I got this app in hopes of getting detailed information that was trustworthy and boy did it deliver! The main stops were good but generic - the extra section at the bottom was the real treasure trove. I also appreciated the map and directions. It’s surprisingly easy to get yourself turned around there.
Great if you’re on a budget or just want to wander at your own pace. Almost pointless going to the ruins without some guide as you don’t get a booklet with your ticket to guide you round/provide any info. This app provides a good level of history and of the ruins. Easy to use and really interesting. Certainly worth the money.
Great App. The Narrative timing and content was amazing and powerful. We downloaded the tours before we went to the Ruins and it worked Offline without any Data. It made our trip perfect. Also the kids loved it.
The demo app worked fine, but once I purchased and downloaded the full guide and went to Chichen Itza (where I didn't have data connection) it just kept crashing. So, basically, it’s completely unusable and a waste of money.
My son was asking how Mayan’s played the ball game without touching the ball. I was amazed that this app showed it clearly using an animation screen. Same thing about the Equinox days. We did not go there on the equinox days. However, the app showed how the snake comes down on the equinox days. Loved the app because of all these animations that guide could not show. Recommend buying it. (Please charge your phone fully before you start.)
This app was super helpful! The GPS guidance worked perfectly. It allowed us to travel at our own pace.
