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.
