  • It was an unplanned visit, however I took a great impression of the place. The guide very informed and with his charisma was able to keep the interested group during the two hours that lasted the walk. A great experience!

  • A nice place for a day trip from Quito, the site is not large and only a small portion of the pyramids have been uncovered. THere are two tiny muesums with pottery and a breif overview of Ecuadorean history. Very knowledgable guide that gives tours (incl in the ticket). Definitely needs more attention from the national authorities to continue with excavations and research. Entrance fee $1 for ecuadoreans, $3 for foreigners. There's also a camping ground that's supposed to be nice.
  • Well worth a visit, not the easiest place to get to but the effort is worth it. Excellent guided tour, stupendous views.
  • Excellent very clean
