I took a collectivo to Chinkultic from Comitán and then walked to the ruins from the road where they dropped me (1km?). I accidentally passed the entrance and continued on to the little cabanas called Chinkultic by accident. There was no one walking on this road but the Mexicans who passed by on moto all waved and smiled hello. Anyway, I walked back and found the entrance. I ran into about 7 tourists the entire time I was there so you really have time alone here. When you sign in they make you keep your backpack there. You can only bring in one bottle of water, camera/phone, hat. This was the first ruin in Chiapas they didn’t allow your backpack. It didn’t make sense to me at all but when in Rome…I took all my valuables and put them in my pocket so if I never saw my backpack again I’d be ok. I trust the ppl working there but I don’t trust any other traveler that could take my pack since there are no receipt/tags for your bag. But I’m ok with their rules just wanted to let ppl know this. There are great views and areas to sit and look out. I counted 255 steps to the top of the main Acropolis. There is a great lookout of the cenote below before you reach the top where it says “peligro”. When you get to the top you are not able to ascend to the very top but the views are spectacular and you can see exactly why they built here. Lakes, cenotes, huge mountain wall, great defense from any intruder. If you look to the southeast from the top you can see there are other pyramids in the distance covered by trees. This site is much larger than what is available to the public if you look around. Many other ruins within it all covered by trees. It’s a gorgeous site and so different than the others I’ve seen here since it has lakes and pines trees surrounding it. Meaning it has not yet been cleared. There is great bird watching, lots of interesting lizards and butterflies too. It closes at 4:00pm.
