Description

DON'T MISS IT - IT'S A REAL GEM!!!
In my eyes comparable to Palenque but less crowded (and not that much jungle).

A very well kept archaeological site with impressive ruins and a small museum with some original artefacts (explanation in Spanish only). We didn't read about this place in our tour books, which is a shame.

A short walk from entrance to ruins. We climbed all the way up to the top and the whole tour took us about 1.5 hrs (but we are not young anymore and for sure you can spend more time). Guides available at entrance. Well worth the 12 km drive from MEX 186/199.

There is accommodation close by. Some vendors and comedores as well.

Open from 8am to 5pm.
Entrance fee 60 Peso/person

Open again but only partial. You can see only the sport field. For us it's not enough. The 90% of the ruins is still closed cause covid, anyway the price is 65 pesos p.p. Museum also closed. The inhabitants and tourism guides are disgusted with those situation. Only there is Covid in the maya piramid? We are living a ilogic era...

Wow! What a beautiful and interesting place. We liked the little museum and the breathtaking view from the top of the pyramid. It was a Thursday around 2p.m when we walked in- we didn't have to pay the entrance fee- just to sign in; we gave a donation for the Mexican Red Cross; we highly recommend this site and the nearby campsite with the cabanas!

Really great ruins and great little museum with statues and model of the place. Was awesome as you are allowed to go almost everywhere, even climb all the way to the top of the very steep pyramid on the highest platform. Best Maya ruins we have seen! Also great to see the stucco as found, the statues and Steele on site. Highly recommended. We didn’t have to pay entrance fee, only needed to sign up.

Really cool ruins set on a steep hill, and extra nice because they are so quiet. Only 5 other people here today which is apparently a public holiday. We got in for free, not sure why.

Amazing and beautiful ruins. As described. Arrived around 1500...a single police officer was at the office with a lady. We signed the entry book, had wallet in hand, and they stated no ticket? Not sure if this is the new norm?

BEAUTIFUL ruins and we were the only ones there at 8h30 on a Sunday morning. Entrance fee is 60P per person. We took a guide for 100P for the 4 of us. Totally recommend visiting those ruins.
