Used my entrance ticket from the main ruins (yesterday's ticket) to enter Las Sepulturas first thing in the morning. Visited all of the structures, and sat in the shade watching many mot-mots, orioles, squirrels and a pair of squirrel cuckoos, plus many other birds. Found...More

The Mayan history is very interesting and they let visitors walk around the current site where archeologists are working. I loved the early morning solitude and birding opportunity in this reserve. It says it is open from 0800 but it is open by 06:45 and...More
