I went with a couple of friends and it was an experience, loved the site, very clean no garbage; the people that take care of the archaeological site are doing a very good job trying to preserve it so everyone could enjoy it.

This was the first time I've ever seen such a wonderfully preserved city. It was worth the four hours from Veracruz. Will definitely say this is a must see. There are also great restaurants on-site with good local food.

If you’re traveling far to see ruins, pay for a guide. If it’s too much money or too much information, ask if someone will give you a condensed version. Beautiful ruins rich in history. Easy to tour, sweet little museum, clean bathrooms, friendly staff, nice...More
