Make sure you arrive early as we arrived just as they were closing. A Gateman took our money ( correct amount!) And took us in through the side quickly but we didn't see everything and missed the 7 dolls temple. Looked good.... and conveniently near...More

This isn't one of the bigger ruins sites and for me it was just not that interesting. We were on a guided tour but honestly it was so hot that all we wanted to do was get out of the heat. Also, unlike nice underwater...More

Our guide had extensive knowledge of the Mayan culture, so he explained everything carefully. It is very hot, so wear light clothes. There a cenote to refresh.

It's easy to find if you drive there. Road signs are good. The site occupies a large area and walking the wide treeless avenue to the Temple of the Dolls from the main complex under the scorching Mexican sun is exhausting so dress accordingly. There's...More

You can take a handbag in but not a backpack. (But you can check for free) Cenote is beautiful. You have to get changed At the entrance and walk there in your swimsuit!

We took our teen age grandsons to introduce them to the Mayan history and traveling in general, what a great time we had. My grandsons quickly met young Mexicans while swimming in the cenote and spent plenty of time cooling down in the water. NOTE:...More

I had never been on a ruins tour and chose this one because it was the shortest one. I loved that the bus ride wasn't too long, and the tour wasn't too long either! We had a good amount of time at the end to...More

Great ruins but we were excited for the denote but it was a little yucky and had tons of mosquitoes.. probably a different time of year would be better.

Yes, but it isn't much. I think it was about $3 or $4 dl. If you have an INAPAM card (Mexico old age card) it is free. You can self-tour. The museum is well worth seeing. There are great changing rooms if you want to... More
