Although not as popular as Chichén Itzá, these ancient Mayan ruins are noteworthy in their own right, as this is the site where Mayan women paid tribute to the goddess of love and fertility.

It is definitely worth hiring a private tour guide. The tour guide Nacho was very knowledgeable and professional. It multiplied the value of the visit with the interpretations.

This is a very interesting archaeological site of the ancient Mayan civilization. Our tour guide, Juan from the facility was extremely informative and tied in the significance of this site with the other sites in the Yucatan and other areas on the mainland,

Hi, we end up renting a jeep so we could drive around the island. It was about 100 dollars plus the gas . There are cabs available that could drive you to the ruins , I am not sure about their charge.
