  • The highlight of this stop was the pink tinted palace. It had an impressive façade. You can't climb it, but you can get close. The other ruins are accessible via a path through the jungle. It doesn't ...  more »
  • Only 9 km from Kabah, this site is somewhat hidden as there is to deviate from the main route. We arrived about 2 pm, there is no visitor. The interesting thing about this place is the Palace in the middle of the vegetation, and from there, there are two paths, one of 300 mts which leads to the Palace of the hieroglyphics and other 700 meters towards the Observatory. It takes not more than a couple of hours to visit. That Yes, very hot in summer time.

  • Very spread out, lots of walking in the jungle. Cool to see the ruins without a lot of the restoration you see at the more popular sights. Not very crowded in early afternoon.
  • Beautiful place and the best time early in the morning. You can enjoy it alone without tourists....
  • The first palace is beautiful but is the only one to really worth it. Uxmal and Kabah are much more beautiful
  • It is ok. Those ruins have not been touched and are really in the jungle. If you are passing by, stop, otherwise, in my opinion they are not worth a deviation.
  • Incredible place not to be missed in the ruta Maya travel
