Look closely at some of the buildings, which retain traces of the original red paint.

  • Super cool experience, we were able to take some awesome pictures and learned a lot about the culture from our guide.
  • Loved visiting here!! Best part was a tour called ?black night cave tubing and mountain climbing!!!!
  • Make sure you spend the extra money and get a private tour. This was an amazing place to visit and the property is well maintained.
  • Went there March 2011 and we loved it. The entrance had some beautiful oil palms that welcomed us in. The ruins and guide tour was great!
  • GREAT! Went here on vacation, it was great. Walking paths take you to all the ruins easy to get to. It was also very well kept from a landscaping standpoint. Our tour guide was great and allowed plenty of time for pictures while also telling us great information about the site and answering any questions we had.
