  • Great place to enjoy and meet a prehispanic landscape. The complex is really nice, and the visit takes approximately 2 hours. It's Totally worth it. The best way to spend 30 pesos!!!

  • This was a great opportunity to do some walking. If you are into celestial based architecture you should go.
  • Beautiful surroundings and scenery. Excellent outing.
  • Extraordinary place magical is going to happen well if they like the archaeological zones arrive with time very good attention
