  • A little-known place, but very beautiful situated 42 km from Campeche, is a very good option for those who like walking in the archaeological zones, the view from the square to the five-story pyramid is a beautiful image.

  • We went by car from Campeche. The ruins consist of beautiful pyramids that you can climb, surrounded by a majestic silence, thanks to the small number of tourists. It is placed in the jungle, but the parts that can be visited are placed in carefully cleaned from vegetation and kept open meadow. The visit is very pleasant, not being a very extensive site, requires little more than one hour is absolutely necessary to use mosquito repellent, which are highly aggressive.

  • An impressive site where you walk around alone. Beautiful buildings which are still well preserved. Only 55,-pesos entrance fee. They are not always on the opening and closing hours.
