  • Like all the archaeological areas of the country it is open every day of the week. The site is very well preserved, although not so the site museum, which looks dated, poorly maintained and with very poor information. The restaurant serves a basic meal but very suitable to taste after the visit.

  • It is a time tour!!!, of I suggest ingesting food before entering a great tour of the TAJIN, so that with the comfort and tranquility you enjoy this beautiful place, although it is no longer allowed to climb the pyramids it is still great to be in nature , purchase the book the TAJIN, or request a guide, without being pressured on your tour, or ending the tour allows you to enjoy each rincon. Go ready to walk, finishing the tour adqueire some of the crafts that sell on the site, from there I suggest you eat rich in papantla, go to the museum live in the garden with squirrels and obviously do not miss the flyers of scarecrow, its great church of the place.
