Amazing site. Did the English Albert coffee tour which really gave us a lot of info. Going without the tour probably wouldn't be worth it. I learned so much about the site and theories behind it

Thank you so much to Albert Coffee who gave us an archaeological tour of the pyramid. Albert is an extremely culturally sensitive guide with an encyclopaedic knowledge in this area of study. Albert has a dry humour and was able to convey much information in...More

So, yes, there are larger and more impressive ruins in Mexico, but you'll never have a more soothing, relaxing, enjoyable visit to an archaeological site in Mexico. You'll find no vendors, no hawking of overpriced art, no hoardes disgorging from huge buses. The site is...More

Very interesting to find out about pyramids discovered on a private rancho near San Miguel. Best seen with a guide who will take you there on an authorized shuttle bus, as access is restricted. You'll have to walk about 6000 meters mostly up hill once...More

We did the 10.00am tour which I’m guessing is the more basic version, and it’s delivered only in Spanish - more bad me for not knowing any Spanish! However, you don’t need words to enjoy this place. The transit to the pyramid itself is breathtaking,...More

This tour and site was super cool for many reasons. The site itself is spiritual because of the culture, the history, and the precise architecture....Alberto, our tour guide, an ethnohistorian, was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and was super friendly and nice. (We booked through...More

We have previously visited the famous ruins in Chichen Itza and Tulum. These are not as large or extensive, but in some ways more impressive because the dig is still in progress and carefully protected from disturbance and commercialization. You have to drive to a...More
