For $3.00 we saw Mayan ruins and didn't have to fight tourists or drive forever to get there. The buildings that were there were in good condition and had descriptive signs about the people that lived there and what the buildings were used for.

Walking down the street we happened upon this archaeological site off the beaten path. For less than 3 USD each, we toured the ruins of a community built in 300 AD. There was no one else there. A hidden treasure.
