The ruins here are of course spectacular, but the layout of the grounds and the background info is especially helpful. Helpful staff and user friendly grounds were most pleasing.

This is a small site and the museum leaves a lot to be desired. However, the beautiful and stunning stelae with their hieroglyphs are something that you can't see at any other Mayan site. The state of preservation allows you to see clear details and...More

Quiet site with impressively tall stelae. Our visit was cut short by torrential rain. I was very impressed at how well the thatched roofs of the shelter kept us dry.

We visited the ruins reasonably early and were the only visitors. At Q80 we hesitated to enter but were rewarded with some intricate, well kept Mayanl ruins in a gorgeous, quiet environment. The grounds are well kept and really lovely. Well with a visit
