Chose to visit here to have a break from the sun lounger. Journey from Riviera Maya was relatively easy. Although Mexican driving takes some getting used to. Passed a few villages which seemed to consist of craft shops only. Didn't stop at the time but...More

Having visited many Mayan ruins, this place is still in my top 5 mainly for the fact that you can still climb the main pyramid. Definitely go early and rent bikes to see all the sites.

There were "bicycle taxis" available for those who did not wish to bike over. The path was not that bumpy or disturbed so it should be ok! Have fun!
