Having never been to central America before this trip, all the articles I've read about Mayans seemed kind of absract, unreal. Visiting the ruins really make the culture coem to life, and I'll ahve to go back and reread some old National Geographics. The roads are pretty bad once you leave the city - but then you get a chance to see a cross section of what life is like there. I think the trip took about 1.5 hours each way. The driver was quite knowledgeable about the local plants, trees, real estate, we enjoyed the conversation. The Mayan ruins are a nice well cared for site, you can climb to the top of the various temples. Local vendors are around with wine, crafts, snacks. Worth the trip
