We went to the ruins in July with a tour and were picked up from our resort. The bus ride was fine, the guide was knowledgeable, it was way to hot to attend with young children. As in 110 degree 100% humidity heat index with beating sun. What to know: You arrive at a marketplace you navigate through to get... More

This place is amazing! This is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen and you could not ask for a more picturesque background. The ruins are awesome. To stand next to and be able to touch something that was built so long ago by human hands is amazing. If you go don't forget your swimsuit so you can enjoy... More

We had a good time here. The scenery and beach were beautiful and the precision of the layout of the buildings with primitive tools to observe solar and lunar events was amazing. I also loved feeding the iguana's flowers by hand, way fun!

Whether walking through the ruins or looking from afar while floating in the water further down the coast, it's always a dramatic, otherworldly look. Ruins perched on a cliff above beautiful turquoise blue water. In the 20 years between my two visits, a lot of development changed at the entrance to the park but the ruins themselves have not been... More

Upon arrival, we stopped at local markets where the local people wher selling their products(souvenirs, hats and t-shirts), oh yea, you need to wear hat/sunglasses, sun was bright and... More
