Literally a tourist trap. Outrageously priced shops with same merch as anywhere else on the island. Little temple is nice enough to visit, as was the pleasant little church next to it. Felt relieved after driving away

This was so terrible, I did not even take any picture. :D we spent here around 5 min. Nothing to see here, we laughed when we saw this place. Everyone tries to sell you something, which is annoying, but thats how it is all around...More

If you only have one day on Cozumel, trust me: skip this. It's a super small ruin, surrounded by a bunch of overpriced aggressive shops. There is a pretty little Catholic church sort of built around the Mayan ruin, and it was wide open, so...More

This is a good way to see a Mayan ruin if someone in your party is in a wheelchair, that being said it was ok to see. You enter into this little town through a toll and only have to pay $2 per person. You...More

Very small ruin next to a slightly larger church. Otherwise it’s a bunch of the usual flea market souvenir shops. You pay at a roadblock to go back into an area where people live. The ruin is in the middle. Very disappointing

Don't waste your time. One small 12' x 12' ruin, an old church and a flea market with only 6 shops open with a small tequila factory/bar. You can't even get a cab out of the place. A very nice shop keeper took us back...More

Great tasting and toasting, but when you purchase taste it first. I bought the best tequila there, got home, opened it wanted to dump it down the drain, make sure you taste first what you buy before you leave. I think I got a bottle...More
