We didn't take a cruise excursion here and just used the local taxi service from the pier. It was like $60 fixed price for the whole family and he waited until we were done and brought us back. Kids were also free at the park so definitely ended up cheaper than excursion prices though we did have to wait in line for a taxi.
We've never been to ruins or even Mexico before so can't compare but we liked what we saw here. We wandered around and explored at our own place, climbing over the ruins in the places the signs didn't say not to and keeping our eyes peeled for the iguanas which hide in the nooks and crannies in between the stones. Combined with the heat the walk almost ended up being too much for my daughter and we had to stop often for water breaks. The path is also rugged stone in most places so wouldn't recommend to anyone with mobility issues either. But definitely was lots of fun and well worth the visit.
