Ruin Tourist Spot
Explore the ruins of a formidable city at El Tajin, an archaeological complex and World Heritage Site.

  • Beautiful place, capital of the totonac Empire, there are guides for travels, in my opinion is a high cost when you go with many people.

  • A stunning location, is one of the archaeological sites more beautiful in Mexico, I really liked the pyramid of the niches, recommended visit him.

  • The Center is very nice, the only thing I didn't like is that to get to know you must find a guide, because in any temple has the explanation or meaning, and guide costs 50 pesos per person. Another thing, if you're browsing to the flyers on the square, you should consider having 20 pesos, which is the rate that impose you per person... so things.
