Located half an hour from the hotel, Hormiguero is a must-see site, only recently accessible to the public. These ruins are considered to be one of the best preserved examples of Rio Bec style architecture. Structure 2, at over 150 feet long, is remarkable in its detail. Further back there is a second plaza with a temple adorned with Chac mask corners. If you head to the left, there is another cleared area and often you will find monkeys either there or near Structure 2.
