I found the collection of artifacts fascinating, the only aspect that would have been enriching for me, would be labels in English and other languages.

Spend the time and go and have a look around. You will be amazed at the history of the Mayan people. The ruins are on the ground floor and the treasures on the first floor. Nice and quiet and air conditioned.

We had a good time visiting this museum. We learned a lot about the area. The architecture is nice and it was a pleasant afternoon out of the heat and humidity.

This is a somewhat small museum, but it has lots of information and history for museum lovers. It is no very expensive so you budget it in.

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.
