This is a nice and compact site. It is cool in the morning and there is lots of shade. Two hours max to see it and then on adjacent sites.

4th Century Mayan ruins in the raw. Well worth the long coach (air conditioned) trip with a very knowledgeable guide & driver! Great photograph opportunities and climbs to the top of the temples - Great!!! Indian Jones - eat your heart out!
