Really incredible place to visit. If you are in San Miguel visiting, this is worth the trip to check out. It's about a 2.5 hour guided tour and you have to walk about 1.5km to get there after the bus drops you off. There is also some elevation when walking so account for that and bring lots of water. I took a ton of photos and wish I had taken even more.
Park your car . Join a tour bus that leaves the reception building on the hour so try to be there just before 10 or 11 or 12 or whenever you plan on arriving. Entry charge is very cheap at $39 pesos each BUT you have to wear a mask ALL the time you are here . Understandable when you are inside a building or on a bus but a long walk in the open air , away from any crowds as there are very few visitors, with a face mask on ? We really wanted to visit the ruins but didn't want to walk 3km with a mask on . We will return when state restrictions are relaxed in the future though as it looks an interesting place and it's small size makes for a more original experience than the major tourist sites I imagine.
