  • Probably the most up-close ruins experience on the planet. There is no hands off rule. We had an excellent guide, Carlos, from Toucan tours. Book online and save 50%, over ship sponsored excursions. Plus the gift shop was extensive without the pressure. Carlos asked us if we wanted to try some street tacos on the way back to port and everyone was in. Great, but simple food, at a fantastic price. My Bride and I each had a beer and 3 tacos for $5!
  • Visited as part of an cruise excursion. It was about a one hour bus ride from the cruise port. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We were able to see several different ruins. While you can not climb all the way to the top, they do let you climb up part way on a few of them. There is a gift shop and small snack area along with restroom where you start and end the tours.
