A 2000 year old Mayan Archaeological Reserve. A jungle experience while touring this almost "virgin" site. No temples here. But the recent clearing of the house sites will give you a sense of the life of the Maya Traders.

You drive up and take off across a rustic wood plank walkway lined with huge iguanas and ending up in a lightly excavated pit house type set of Mayan ruins...other worldly!

This is a cool site, and great information. Do NOT forget your mosquito spray. Guides are great, and this was super cool to see how they are putting everything together.

Definitely an authentic site, with lots of interesting content. The walk to the site on a long boardwalk gave opportunities to see plenty of great wildlife. However, unfortunately the insects cannot be understated - we had to leave without seeing the whole site as a...More

The site is not well-maintained and could use a good cutting back of overgrowth to reveal what's there. Access is about a 1/4 mile long wooden walk raised above the mangrove water and bug spray is an ABSOLUTE MUST. To really see Mayan ruins, leave...More

This site is wonderful! You do a self guided tour but be aware it is not for the faint of heart. It is located on a dirt road (which can be bumpy) and also on mosquito coast - need I say more! Dress appropriately and...More

We showed up in our rental golf cart on Saturday, to find that it was closed "due to mosquitoes". We defer to their judgement, and assume the mosquitoes were overwhelming, but there was nothing on the web about the closure. We did enjoy the ride...More

We rode bikes down from San Pedro. A 5 mile dusty and hot trip. I guess based on the descriptions I read in the Rough Guide and on line I was expecting to see some established Mayan ruins. The site consists of a quarter mile...More

There is not a lot to see as this was just a small fishing and possibly a salt production village but interesting to imagine how they survived 500 years ago

Long walk into the main plaza was worth it. Maya priest, special blessing (reflected post contact with Our Father!) with copal incense and beautiful dancers. Much work has been done to make the site more accessible. Bring bug repellent with DEET! Bring a bottle of...More
