Terrible workers. They are rude, and they don't even know where the bathrooms are. Our tour guide was disrespectful and didn't know the place.

It's a 100pesos pp to get inside. We've been here for two times and it was always quiet, just us. We had a tour guide that speaks English. It's mostly ruins and a lot of history. Stunning view.
