Ruins like no others in Mexico. Very unique arhcitecture. My only regret is not having more time.
Some of the limestone casing with itls orginal paint is still on site. Carvings still intact on the sidewalls of the ballcourt. Great on site museum.
Bring lots of water, sunblock and a hat. Taxi's are very cheap in that area..

The road leading into the El Tajin, is lacking signs, has too many "TOPES", and is in generally poor condition...but don't let that discourage you.....IT IS WORTH IT!

GOOD SITE, and plan on spending at least 4 hours there miniuml;;;

We had an amazing visit to El Tajin. There is nothing interpreted in English and very little in Spanish. For about 200 pesos, it was well worth it to hire a guide. His English was decent and he was knowledgeable, warm, personable, and traces his lineage to the Totonac people. That was a bonus. At 12 noon, we caught the Volvadores (flyers). Also a highlight. Well worth the effort to get here.

The Tajin pyramids are well worth the visit and easy to get to. We went to Tajin during the festival (which is also well worth going to!), we visited the pyramids in the morning and found in most places we were the only ones there. While the drive from DF can be a bit hectic, especially during this high season, visiting Tajin and the surrounding area is a must.

El Tajin is at least as good a site to visit as the famous Teotihuacan. With an exciting and musical Voladores ceremony and country setting, it has been a pleasant visit.
