We've been to the larger more famous ruins. This one was only minutes from a hotel, only around $3 for entrance fee. The ruins were great and if you like iguanas you'll have a unique photo op.

Small ruins that were within walking distance of our hotel, Villa Del Palmar (if you're willing to walk 45 minutes in the heat). The benefit to them being small and not well known is that it's you, the docent at the front and a frighteningly...More
