  • This place reminded me of the ruins in Machu Picchu but of course of a much much smaller scale. Worth a visit.  more »
  • The day we visited there were many locals arriving by boat in traditional dress to celebrate the first day of Spring. The history of the island and the ruins are very interesting.  more »
  • Loved staying here a night to watch the sunset and take time to explore the island. Amazing views from the miradors and lovely people. It is a bit tourist trappy but I think staying the night vs just a day trip is worth it. Highly recommend
  • interesting to read the positive and negative reviews. I agree with both. However, like anything else, it is what you make of it. There are a couple of great trails, and two pretty good ruins to look at. As with most other local ruins, they are not yet roped off from the public, so one can actually touch the 2000 year old stones. I personally think the entire area is amazing.
