I'm hiking around the world, and came across this site as I walked down Highway 200. First off, the site's incredibly well maintained by the family that lives on site, who are wonderful and more than helpful I might add. As far as Mayan ruins go, it's hard for me to rate this high as a tourist attraction based on aesthetic appeal and the wonderful maintainers alone, as there simply I not much to it. Monika (another reviewer) mentions two sites, so maybe I missed out on the wider appeal, but comparing this to Tulum, Chitzen Itza, it's simply ok. And to jadeadvocate's point - the place is simply too small and is a nice to see, but the facilities and services offered are more than adequate considering the size and variety of what's here. If you're in the area, it's worth a stop over, but this place is definitely not worth going way out of your way for!
Oh one last thing... The dogs. Love Mitzi, but she wasn't fond of my backpack and lunged at me, good thing I had pants on, she might have taken skin. the dogs that guard the area are aggressive, so be careful with the kids.
