  • Wonderful place to wander around. Bring comfy shoes and something to drink. They do have guides if you would like some explanation. Small compared to other sites but exquisite architectural style. I loved how the cacti does it down thing around here
  • Beautiful building, sadly it closes too early and/or opens too late. 10 AM is too late and the heat is already settling in. 3 PM is too early because most returns from Hierve El Agua would be around this time making this site too hard to visit. You cannot really see the site from outside as well, making it a very sad touristic place and a lost money making opportunity.
