  • It was a great luck and good decision to include this site in my itinerary. It is a place which is on the way if you are going from Chiapa de Corzo to San Cristóbal of the houses, the place is called Ocosingo and there's not much to see, but if one continues along the road is this little visited and magical archaeological site. The entry is not expensive and for a few pesos more a guide will offer to give you a guided tour, which is very worthwhile. The place is awesome, well preserved, with many things to see and learn about the Maya, also the place is not busy which gives a very special touch to not be saturated with people. It is a place that reveals the Majesty of the Mayan civilization, and is only a part, since the forest still covers a portion of the site that are discovering.

  • At first I didn't know this site is Mayan. The place where it is located is so different from the jungles of Palenque or mediterranian vegetation of the sites in Yucatan. This site is surrounded by be...  more »
  • 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.
  • Love this place. It's in the middle of no where. The boat trip out there was fun and the place is amazing.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Small but authentic ruins on the border with Guatemela. Great tour including boat ride to the ruins.
