Izamal Ruins, Izamal
(3.8/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • It is worth much, it is a magical, very clean, beautiful, walkable village. There are several interesting pyramids, combined with round corners and sometimes triangular construction technique. The Cultural and handicraft Museum has a small collection with a great nursery. Highly recommended is a visit to Izamal.

  • Izamal is a place that you can't miss, from the atrium of the convent and its majestic arches, to visit this unique pyramid, this experience should be not omitted on the agenda of the traveller crags.

  • The yellow city offers more than the convent and horse-drawn carriages, indeed almost ' a dozen pyramids are scattered in the city including a gigantic has several levels. See fault. (Photos taken on a previous trip)
