An amazing history lesson over-looking the ocean. The ruins are well-maintained and our guide was full of Mayan knowledge. Feels like you are in a National Geographic magazine.

Visited today on our own without the use of any guides and using a hire car. Very easy to find off the 307 highway. Car parking was 100 mx pesos and if you ignore all the people after you to hire them to guide you around for a fee and make your way to the official entry point then the... More

I really enjoyed having the tour guide that gave us so much more insight into the sites we were seeing. It doesn't seem like much as you first walk in, but as you move around the structures and listen to the history and the layout of upper class down into the lower class level of society as it would have...

What an amazing piece of history! the tour guide was very informative and friendly; he was very open to questions. It is a long walking tour, so be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes and water. You can also walk down to the beautiful beach and go for a swim, so bring necessities. There were iguanas everywhere! I was... More

They are fascinating and you get to see loads of Iguana's - we went with Cancun Adventures we had a really good guide - we also snorkeled with Turtles in the afternoon. Brilliant trip well worth the money.

Be smart and go as early as possible in the AM before the intense heat and large large crowds arrive. It got extremely crowdwed. Don't be fooled what looks like a ticket booth when you get off your bus. That's not it. You need to walk about a quarter mile down thee road to the real ticket booth.
