  • Lovely, atmospheric place....trip is from earlier than 2020. There is a calming emotive feel to this place...I felt at peace here.  more »
  • The convent is interesting to look at and makes for a great background for pictures BUT my experience was negative because after a daytime visit we came back (20 minute walk each way) in the evening.....  more »
  • I really enjoyed my visit here. The museum itself is pretty sparse but the inner courtyard was a great place to catch a little shade and take a few photos. The church itself has an ornate floor to ceiling rereso that is breathtaking.
  • Don't get me wrong, this is not a piramid or a cenote, so don't expect a kind of WOW effect by visiting the convent, but if you want to see part of real, calm, Yucatan state, this is a great spot. If you are lucky you will see kids running around barefoot, some locals going to the mess, or Maya locals selling exotic delicious fruits
