Just a few dollars (USD) to get in. Downstairs are Mayan ruins. You’d never expect that on the other side of the trees were ruins. It was an interesting walk with iguanas, woodpeckers and other birds. Upstairs was a Mayan museum. This place is also...More

Saw the ruins with my wife and then toured the museum. We learned a great deal about the Mayan culture and life. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Rating: 8/10.

If you don't this will be a lot of guesswork. There are some parts in English but not enough to make this memorable. I totally understand the main language being Spanish but if your core market is American Tourists and your secondary market is Mexican/Spanish...More

So, this museum is right in the heart of the hotel-zone (near Omni, Emporio, Royal Caribbean) of Cancun. It is NOT another ripoff touristy site as those in big cities with pricey tickets and no artifacts but replicas. The Museum stands within a well-maintained jungle...More

It should be about a 15 minute drive. Note that you'll need to go past and make a u-turn at one of their turn-around spots when you go there. I do not think they have a snack bar, however the museum is small and you will be... More

Sorry, we do not know if there are guides or not. We do recall that English language signage has improved since the first year.
