Ruin Historic Site
Considered the last big Mayan civilization before the arrival of the Spanish, Mayapan Mayan Ruins remains relatively unvisited. There are over 4,000 structures to view practically on your own within the surrounding 9 km (5.5 mi) stone wall. The site does not have any restrictions, so you can photograph the ancient dwellings to your heart’s desire. Be sure to walk through the ceremonial center where temples, halls, shrines, platforms, and altars can be found, or take the time to climb to the top of the pyramid and view the site from above.

  • Visit these ruins is like visiting Chichen Itza but in a version more small and more crude, more towards a the center of the country, the extension is great has reliefs and also an Observatory. Overall worth the paena visit that is far from Merida, by the time of travel (approx. 2 hrs) I do not recommend the use of sunscreen and insect repellent of mosquitoes. Details and conservation is of great value to have arguments for your visit.

  • We were the only ones on the entire site. Magnificent maya site very clear. Not touristy at all but worth the trip! To do if you are in the vicinity of Mérida. Very easy to access. 40 pesos per person.

  • Very nice site, little visited, with a tank as Chitchen Itza, of beautiful bas-reliefs and a pyramid that can climb in a site on a human scale, everything perfect!
