Like most of the ancient ruins in the Southwest, Aztec is as spectacular as the others. Beautiful visitors center, easy access from the main road, and very well laid out for the visitor. Park staff as usual, are knowledgeable, passionate and helpful.

If you like ruins these are definitely worth a visit. You can walk right into some of the rooms. A short video at the beginning helps you understand what you are looking at. And they don’t even charge an admission fee.
