We drove to this archeological site by renting a car for 2 couples and driving without a guide from Merida city. After about an hour from city limits we arrived at this gem. We had gone to Chichen-Itza a couple days earlier and it was...More

Very moving. Done in Spanish but I didn’t mind. It helped with the mistique wish we had gotten there earlier. People with disabilities can see some of the ruins but not the show

Loved every minute of it....beautiful remnants of history. A unique visit away from our modern world. Lots to think about. Good books in several languages to learn about the culture. And if you like iguanas as I do you're in the right place.

Sorry, no idea about bus. We travelled from Merida by car - about an hour/hour and a half. What about asking your tour operator? As others have said - well worth a visit! Wonderful site, not too many other tourists. Carry... More

The only thing I can answer is that yes you can walk around without having a tour. About the bus, I don't know, we drove.
