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. Work out when and for how long to visit Izamal Ruins and other Izamal attractions using our handy Izamal trip planner.

  • It's a great place. If you were in larger complexes, you can be disappointed, but for me the great, because no tourists, free parking, admission free. You can climb the pyramid. Around is a lot of iguanas.

  • If you saw the larger Mayan plants, you will be disappointed here a little. Single Voretil: it is also no admission to pay :)
