We visited the site in August. Actually, our visit was quite quick. There is not much to see. The ruins are not very maintained, which makes the archeological site less interesting than others ones around Merida like Uxmal or Chichen Itza.

My wife and I with family and friends have been here many times. In addition, we have a friend that has done it in conjunction with Chitzen Itza for the Equinox (the sun is centered through the temple here at that time). It's really spectacular and there is a great museum on site. Be aware, there isn't much shade and... More

Very close to Merida, lovely small museum, the cenote is easily swimmable as it is not in a cave. Although small children can get fidgety (as they will in archaeological sites), it is very much worth the visit. Lovely hacienda for breakfast or lunch 3 kms. before, but they have a dress code for the restaurant: no tshirts, shorts and... More

We came here on a very hot day on our way to Progreso. Didn't visit the ruins too extensively, but really enjoyed the great cenote. Lots of people eventually, so we left but really enjoyed our time there.

This is a good archeological site to go to if you are pressed for time or not terribly interested in Mayan ruins. Just 15 min from Merida it is an easy trip to make in the morning & be back in Meriday for lunch. Major bonus to visiting here is an ground level cenote that is safe & easy to... More

Great place to visit, varied activities, like seeing a museum, visiting the pink flamingo lagoon, seeing the ruins, swimming in the cenote.

The small site and accompanying museum are well worth the visit. Site was not crowded. The ruins while not as spectacular as Uxmal or Chichen It's provide yet another glimpse into the life of the Maya. Convenient short ride from Merida.

This was my favorite Mayan site during my trip to Merida. The buildings are beautiful and the museum is very well done. Bring a bathing suit and towel in case you want to swim in the cenote. Make sure you bring cash, the gift shop is cash only and the ticket office's credit card machine was down, so they were... More
