Seeing the ruins were really amazing, although it kinda sucks you can't climb them or go inside them anymore. My biggest complaint about this trip is the length and time management. The place is 2 hours away but it takes much longer to get there on bus because you stop in a flea market to buy alot of over priced junk that you can find for sale at the ruins. The staff was very nice and warned us about the hagglers in the ruins selling stuff for 1 mayan dollar which is just a made up scam to lure you in. I'm surprised they allow these people to run around the ruins selling junk and bother tourists, all the stuff they sell is the same as the stuff sold off the bus when you make a stop, which is also the same stuff sold at other ruins locations. We also got to go to a swimming sink hole which was amazing but I was really disappointed in the amount of time we got to stay there. We had 20 min to change get a locker for our stuff and walk down into the swim area, so basically there was enough time to jump in and get out and re-change. I think the trip would be better if it cuts out the filler of all the bus stops and just drives straight to the ruins. This trip will take a full day out of your vacation, it's really nice to see a world wonder even if you can't touch it, but just beware it will be the only thing you do that day.
