I think that it is overpriced except on Sunday when it is half price (240 pesos). One has the opportunity to explore the main ruins that are floodlit and particularly highlight the carvings. An informative commentary is given via an iPod and one can choose...More

It is a good site to visit. Best to higher couch trip from your Hotel. Nearly 2 hours from Cancun. Will need a guide which your touring company should provide. On a sunny day can be uncomfortable as it is all open place.

They really do put on a great night show but for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids it was expensive. Almost 170 dollars for a one hour light show. Crazy expensive, Impresive but would not recommend it for a family especially for the...More

No, it is not worthy. Definitely. With this price you get show which you can watch on YouTube. Nothing special. They promise also that you can walk around before show. It is not true. We went. Two women with 3 kids. Show... More
