We started a conversation with our 16 year old about visiting Mexico and particularly the Mayan Ruins. We were under some notion (we being the adults) that you could just walk up the pyramids etc.....In other words I don't know ANYthing about the ruins. I have done a bit of research and it sounds like mostly they are all roped off etc....Except these ones. Is this the most authentic place to visit ruins? Would we get the most out of them here? How do you get here? By that I mean where would we fly into? We would be coming from the New Enland area. It says it is a 5 and half hour drive into the jungle? Are there any comparable ruins not so far off the beaten path? Thanks for any and all help. I certainly could use it!
