A 2000 year old Mayan Archaeological Reserve. A jungle experience while touring this almost "virgin" site. No temples here. But the recent clearing of the house sites will give you a sense of the life of the Maya Traders.

We showed up in our rental golf cart on Saturday, to find that it was closed "due to mosquitoes". We defer to their judgement, and assume the mosquitoes were overwhelming, but there was nothing on the web about the closure. We did enjoy the ride...More

There is not a lot to see as this was just a small fishing and possibly a salt production village but interesting to imagine how they survived 500 years ago

This Maya site is easy to miss and not too many people are aware it even exists. It has no intact temples so imagination is a must here. You see outlines of areas that made a plaza or home and many artifacts. Be sure to...More

Bring your DEET filled repellent on this one because the mosquitoes are vicious. We rented a golf cart and took the road all the way south to get to this archaeological site. At the entrance, they provide you with head nets or a body net...More
