The small town that surrounds the important structure is filled with tourists who travel here specifically to visit the ruins and may only stay long enough to do so, but there are a few activities to keep those those who stay longer busy. These include treatments at a healing spa, birdwatching on local nature trails, and trips to cenotes not far from the ruins.
