We hired a guide an the entrance and were glad we did, and even went into the sinkhole. This is worth the trip.

My recommendation would be to go when the museum is open and/or to have a guide so you know what you are looking at - a fascinating Mayan history lesson!

Easy day trip from Meridia. My 70 year old mother had no problem navigating around the ruins. The small museum was thorough but quaint. The Cenote was crowded but refreshing.

These ruins are interesting and worth a visit, though they don't compare to the major sites like Uxmal. The reason to go here is the small cenote, tucked into the landscape and half covered with lovely waterlilies. You are allowed to swim in it and it is such an extraordinary experience to slip into this magical pool in the center of the archeological site. It is very deep at one end, but there are spots to stand and hold on and the temperature was wonderful. Sitting on the edge, the little fish come and nibble at your feet, a very odd experience which I guess you pay for in some spas. We brought our suits and found an out-of-the-way spot to change to wander around the rest of the site. This swim was a really memorable part of our visit to the Yucatan and a special moment.

This is a beautiful site with a small but very nice museum. It has lovely walking areas. The site itself has little shade so be prepared.
