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.

  • In the middle of town, with an ancient culture and huge pyramids, the village is magical, with plenty to do, visit the local market to eat real Yucatecan food. a place that is worth a visit

  • It is surprising to find these ruins in the village, part of the neighborhood. They are well preserved to find a few blocks from the Center. Not to be missed if you visit Izamal.
