Take a private tour, it is worth it! Amazing ruins and a beautiful cenote where you can swim at the end of the tour. My kids loved it and us too!

We can't recommend this site enough! It has everything including a beautiful pyramid complex with an informative museum, and refreshing cenote. We especially appreciated the fact that this site is not crowded like many of the other Mayan sites in Mexico. We were able to...More

Yes, but it isn't much. I think it was about $3 or $4 dl. If you have an INAPAM card (Mexico old age card) it is free. You can self-tour. The museum is well worth seeing. There are great changing rooms if you want to... More
