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.

    Comparisons are odious and Itzamatul compared with its sister higher Kak moo, loses out obviously, but is pretty and has good view also

    You have to go with appropriate clothing as the temperature of Izamal is even warmer than in the city of Merida so you can explore this area archaeological which is one of the most important in Izamal

    Interesting to go to visit them and to know its history, but one of them was in maintenance could not visit the so-called "kabul", but the "kinich-kakmó" is impressive, not suitable for pregnant women or elderly people since they are many steps to go up and the heat is very tired, close at 5:00 pm.
