  • If in Izamal, these ruins are so easy to climb and enjoy that you might as well take them in. This being said are they impressive, not in comparison to Coba, Tulum, Uxmal or Muyil. Having seen these o...  more »
  • The third pyramid more high in the country after the Teotihuacan and the Cholula Puebla, in the middle of the city of izamal rises this Mayan construction than its name in Spanish means fire macaw. The view is amazing once you get to the top. Preferred.

  • Interesting, and an essential visit if you are already in the town. Easy to spot from all over the town, as a pyramid should be. Follow the signs up a stepped alley and its in front of you. The plateau at the top of this easy flight is large and well used by locals an visitors to sit & picnic. If you want to climb to the next level, you can but it quickly gets difficult. This is due both to its being so old, and partly due to the steepness. Good town views from all levels.
  • This is worth the visit and the climb. You can see out over the whole city from the top of the pyramid and identify other landmarks. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes with traction. The pyramid doesn't always have ropes.
  • Very little signage. Not restored pyramid which was nice to see. Bit of a challenge to climb but worth the effort. Good view of the town of Izamal from the top.
  • Hard to get to the top. A bit dangerous steps but very interesting. Make sure you have the right shoes and a hat, it's very hot and sunny. Thankfully, after you get back to the "entrance" there's a paletería (ice cream shop) there to grab a popsicle and cold drinks!
  • Beautiful climb. Great view. In January, closes at 5. Easy parking. Even a geocache to be found!
