It is a mosquito infested park that is riddled with either dog or iguana poop everywhere. Not worth the 20 pesos to go in.

This is more of an exploration of a bygone era at this point than a manicured park. Bring bug spray, and your sense of adventure. If you like hiking through unoccupied trails, paths and some jungle areas while finding ruins, wells and relics of yore,...More

We liked the history and the atmosphere so much we went back two straight days to take pictures and read the history. The full story is worth the time to understand what you are looking at.

We had the whole place to ourselves, fun to wonder around and explore the ruins. Very reasonable 20 peso entrance fee, plenty of iguana watching too!
