Aside from the parking entrance of 20 pesos each person is required to pay 100 pesos . There are some food stalls as soon as you enter . The grounds are well kept though and there are nice photo places.

Take a CERES bus to Bacolod City and get off at the North Terminal of CERES beside the Pepsi Cola bottling plant. Then, take a tricycle ride to The RUINS.
