Well worth the trouble to get there. An impressive Mayan ruin. Watch the heat! It can be brutal. You are not allowed to climb on the ruins.

The number of hawkers was excessive, as were the number of tourists.We were able to visit in the morning, before the crowds, but in the afternoon it was like Victoria station on a weekday rush hour.

We hired Canada Transfer for private tour. They had cold water and hot towels for us. Entrance was included. We did not pay for a guide. We were able to stop for bathroom breaks and eat as needed since it was a private tour.
