We took an organized tour planned by our Delta rep at a reasonable price at the last minute and we were glad we did.
The ruins were not as huge as I had anticipated but spectacular to see. I highly recommend taking a tour or hiring a guide because the information provided certainly provided an insight researching will not. The tour itself was only about an hour and a half with free time at the end to continue exploring or shop in the entrance plaza. After spending time on 5th avenue we were not in the mood for the constant beckoning to visit each shop so we advised our bus driver we would not be returning to our resort and ventured off on our own. Took a cab to a beach area and wandered for the rest of the afternoon enjoying the slower pace the beach area provided.
