Save yourself the walk or tuktuk ride. The items are all put away. The cases are empty and shoved to the wall. They seem to be painting and cleaning. Darn.

We went to Museo Arqueologico Azul Maya twice for breakfast. The restaurant has a very nice and quiet garden where you can relax before starting your day. The food was very good, as was the service. Very good quality for price ratio!

Patio is lovely, location is convenient (just off main drag Santander), service is good, staff is personable. Before/after your meal, browse thru the museum. It's a collection of privately owned Maya artifacts, and offered for display by the founder's granddaughter. Good bi-lingual signage. Probably more...More

They have an amazing collection of mayan artifacts found on their trips around the country. They also have a family b&b with a lovely and friendly staff with a very serene front garden. Thanks for being a great host Adriana.
