If you are into this sort of thing, you will love it. My kids (11 and 14) were over it pretty quickly though. Pay $500 pesos for a guide. Don’t think you know what is going on without one. Bikes speed up the trip and...More

Large site with the Temple of Kukulcan (or El Castillo) at the center, this trip was worth the 5 hours roundtrip. Ball courts, the observatory and other ruins cover a wide area that will take about 3 hours if not more to cover. Unlike Nohoch...More

We visited here on a tour organised by Tui. Our guide Roberto was knowledgable, professional and courteous. His English was excellent and he was totally engaging throughout. The site itself is more basic than Chichinitsa but that is part of its splendour, we visited the...More

This is quite an extensive site, but for those who find walking difficult there are a plethora of cycle taxis to take you from pyramid to pyramid. The site is popular, though nothing like the horror of Chichen Itza or Tulum, so it might be...More
