  • Yes, these ruins are smaller than other ruins in the area, but they have carvings that are well preserved inside one of the pyramids. When we went there were only 2 other cars in the parking lot...  more »
  • This Mayan ruin has some very well preserved carvings. Definitely worth checking out. We stayed at Xpujil and visted 3 ruins in one day. Becan, Chicana and Balamku.  more »
  • Great place and empty of tourism but there are even better archeologic zones around.
  • Don't skip this one! It is a beautiful place, lots of pyramids! Monkeys flying over your head, peacocks jumping out of the bushes, super quiet and at the end there are three pyramids next to eachother which reminded me of the orions belt.. AND THEN you actually get to go IN one of them and all of a sudden there is a huge treasure room full of hyroglyphic well preserved statues that I have not seen anywhere else in Mexico!
