  • Remarkable Mayan ruin still little frequented by tourists in a beautiful landscape and well cared for. The highest from the base to the cusp of all mesoamerica and l only one rebound almost vertically above the base. Thanks to Manuel, official guide site, he guided us through the secrets and rituals of this great civilization. You should also visit the small museum.

  • Beautiful site reached by a lovely boat ride on the Usumacinta River. Be sure to look at all the stelea and underneath the door lintels. These are amazing works of art. The area is well preserved and beautifully cared for.
  • One of the most impressive Mayan cities I've visited. It is the largest pyramid in México and is only second to Mirador in Guatamala. The conservation state is awesome. Be sure to have enough water and sun protection, you'll need it.
  • Love this place. It's in the middle of no where. The boat trip out there was fun and the place is amazing.
  • It is remarkable that this site is not better known. At its height it rivaled Palenque as a seat of Mayan power. While not as fully restored as other major sites, it is easy to see the scope and grandeur that once existed here. The ball courts are especially impressive.
  • Best ruins we've seen so far. Sonder why it is not well-known as others. It was free, ans really nice. You can see the inside galeries, some piece of art. The"juego de pelota" is a reconstitution but the post amazing we've seen.
