Even though this site can never be compared to Chichen Itzá nor Uxmal, it is worth visiting. I would recommend a guided tour, because they can tell you lots of details about the Temple of the Seven Dolls . The museum is very interesting. And...More

These ruins are just mind blowing. Just to think this was actually a real city for the Mayan people. Very very educational. We loved going there and seeing history. Well worth going.
