  • Lovely ruins, it was worth to come I definitely recommend if you’re near by is worth to visit. We were amazed with the kindness of the guy that took us on the bike, he taught us some words in Mayan and the history of the ruins. Big ruins there’s plenty of space to go around.
  • Very nice place. It's nice that it's almost entirely in the shade, but it's still a walk of about 3-4 km. In this heat, I recommend renting a bike. They offer them for about 150-200 pesos. We didn't and we regretted it. It was possible to miss it, but in that heat it was possible to take it.
