This was an excursion booked thru our Royal Caribbean cruise. These ruins are well preserved. Daniel, a Mayan, was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable & thorough. You can climb some of the sites if you wish.

The ruin were very interesting. The walk to the ruins was very shady - I did not need sunscreen. You do have to watch for fire ants in the grassy areas. We did not have any trouble with mosquitos or flying insects - maybe because...More

The site is small, but the structures are well preserved. There is a bit of a hike to each section, but probable less than a mile total walking. It is hot and muggy, and some biting bugs, but not horrible. You can't walk up the...More
