Went on Mayan Experience. One of best excursions I have taken. The tour guide was very nice and informative. It was relaxed with plenty of time to see the ancient sites and enjoy the fabulous lunch with Mayan ancestors was fabulous. Would highly recommend.

Lovely to see Mayan ruins without crowds. It's a smallish site but no less magnificent in its own way than Chicheniza It's got a kind of lost ruins in the jungle feel to it and is well worth the effort to get there
