Rating:5/5 based on 4 votes

some interesting archeological buildings close to the ocean - great views - swimming possible - lots of inhabit animals like iguanas


A big place with a few historic buildings, nice to walk, be comfortable because it is really hot, best of the place the beach down.


This place enchanted the view and the contrast between the ancient structure and the beach — too much Mayan culture to learn. Things to know about this place, first remember is near the coast, don't forget the sunblock, hat, bugs repellent, and water to keep hydrated. Prepare to walk and remember is one of the most visited places in the area; you will find a lot of people's.

***Lonely Planet***

It is a restored and not a big city; however, it is a city which every person interested in Mayan architecture must see; as well, it is the most picturesque location!

***Lonely Planet***

Have good walking shoes, water ,small towel and sunscreen. The place is beautiful to tour and explore, but if you are not an active walker it will be hard to climb the steps and be out in the sun. So many Iguanas and other wildlife in and around the Ruins which makes it wonderful to take pictures and gaze at the beauty of the place.
