Spectacular design. It was well worth the visit, make sure you get there early if you don't want hundreds of other people in your photos

Amazing sight, plenty of photo opportunities. Our guide was very informative. Very hot though, take a hat and don't forget your sunglasses and sun cream. Would definitely recommend it if you are into this kind of thing.

I have been to Egypt and see the great pyramids and been told the stories about them. This one is not as visual impressive, but the purpose and placement of this make it just as interesting. First of, each side, step, number of different shapes all have a purpose. the numbers 9 and 13 is all over the place. It... More

I was surprised at the shape this pyramid is in. The back side has some stones falling away, but the front side looks good. I would love to be able to climb it, but can understand why that is no longer allowed. You can see the damage left in the middle of the stairs from people constantly climbing up over... More

I had been here once before in 2010, but I was working as a tour manager. It was so good to go back and be the tourist myself this time. It is good to get a guide, but if you don't have the time or want to pay for one, it is great to print out stuff from Wikipedia ahead... More

Having visited other Mayan ruins like Coba and Tulum, this surely feels like so well preserved/ restored and imposing, unfortunately not allowed on to climb, like the one in Coba, but with great acoustic /just clap your hands at the centre of each side, near the ropes and prepare to be surprised/

Well it was hot as could be but it was a great experience and a great time with the family. You have to see it to understand it but I was really happy my family got to go.
