Izamal Ruins, Izamal

(3.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Contemplate Mayan architecture at Izamal Ruins. The archaeological site consists of five pre-Columbian structures, including two pyramids, two great temples, and a large building. Climb up the great pyramid, Kinich Kak Moo. Its base covers just under 1 ha (2 ac) and is dedicated to the Maya sun god. A climb to the top rewards you with panoramic views of pristine surroundings. Only the first third of the stairs have remained preserved, so bring tough shoes to traverse up the uneven rock to the top. Using our online itinerary creator, Izamal attractions like Izamal Ruins can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • There are several pyramids in Izamal, but that definitely stands out for its size and age is Kinich Kamoo. It is huge and its plant is greater than the pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan. Height seems not so much by the width that has. Definitely worth a visit since it is the oldest of the Mayan world.

  • Great local people's attitude towards visitors. Kindness and helpfulness are the rule! Always keep a very good memory.

  • It's another pyramid in the middle of town. No entrance fee and when you climb the few steps you do not expect such a big pyramid  more »
