  • I did this excursion with Secretoo and their guide Enrique a few days ago, we were with our kids with family and we just loved it. The day started with the visit of the ruins aboard a tuk tuk, it is nice not to have to market 50 km, we climbed on the pyramid to admire the view and take some pictures, our guide Enrique explained to us a little the history of the site and the Maya. It was very captivating. Then we went in a very beautiful cennote, we were alone with our guide, then at a local inhabitant who made his own farm, he cultivates his products, vegetables, fruits and honey and he protects different breeds of endangered animals, it's nice the tour is done quickly and then we go to table, meal summary but good. After the meal we took the road to go to the reserve of Punta Laguna to look for the monkeys, there was a local guide with us, we saw 2 families of spider monkeys and two howler monkeys, some birds and we were explained the plants Lo Shims. And for finished we finished the day on the lagoon to do some canoe and Tyrolean. The children have adoed. I highly recommend their excursion.

  • Definitely one of the most interesting Mayan ruins. You can still climb the pyramid there. It is recommended to rent a bike at the entrance so that you can explore the extensive complex more quickly.
