This was a well orchestrated trip! Our guide was easy to understand and had a broad knowledge base of the subject. Don't miss this day trip!

“Great site, poor presentation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

The tour could have been more memorable if the language skills of our guide were better, if the story would have had more substance to it and if the site would have been better prepared for the intellectual tourist. I find Latin American experiences to be more of the same, they need funds to build their infrastructure and tourism is a good source. There is great history behind these ruins but poor ability to make a story to sustain the interest of the traveller. Guides should be trained far much better. Following the visit to the site we continued our tour to the Mayan village. The poor scene in the Mayan village was more on the ridiculous side. I am not sure if they are actors or true villagers, except for the face features reminding of the Mayans they gave us nothing. They live already the modern life which is ok, they wear modern clothes and use cellphones which is understandable but that should have been be a site dedicated to the history of the Mayans and it didn't work out well. All in one a nice one time visit.

“Don't miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

If you like historical spot and beach this is your choice. I can spend a day or afternoon visiting increasing your knowledge about Mayans ruins and can escape to refresh your sweat on the beach. Is there something else better do?

“Not kid friendly.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Some of the tour was good but it was not kid friendly i.e. pushing strollers in the sand. Catching a ride on the trolley every five minutes did not happen for us. The signage was poor and we ended up taking a taxi back to the starting point at our cost of $130 pesos.

“Mayan Ruins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

This was a wonderful adventure for us we walked up to the top of the Ruins and stood where the Mayans stood. What a great feeling to learn about their history-Definitely do it!!
