Like Uxmal, these Mayan ruins are close to Merida, but not nearly as commercialized or crowded as Chichen Itza, which is a bit farther away. There were only a handful of other people on the grounds when we were there, and the place is beautiful.

You have to make plans for a visit to here when touring the Yucatan. A quite place off the beaten path. Not allot of tourist. And plenty of photo opportunities to see the natural beauty.

Went here as part of a bigger cruise excursion. This was my personal favorite part of the excursion. It was very well kept and you actually can climb the steps, for now anyway. Most ruins are visited so often they don't let you climb the...More

Very interesting and informative. Tours guides were excellent and very well educated on subject matter. Overall the tour is a bit rushed in order to get back to cruise ship. The ruins are amazing and you can climb to the top of the tallest structure....More

There is a cenote but is more like a cave and there is no swimming; maybe you are thinking of Dzibichaltun, where you can swim and you can bring your towels and back pack, there are bathrooms where you can change and I... More
