Mayapan Mayan Ruins, Merida

(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This site is a bit off major tourist sites which allowed us to visit solo really nice small climb on this crushed monument of heat to contemplate the whole of the city

  • Unfortunately it is one of the archaeological sites (as many in Mexico) that do not receive sufficient funds from the Government and thus is neglected in some places, however there are few people during the week is you can go very well and enjoy the explanations of the guides.

  • We took the Merida bus tour for 25.00. Very glad we went. Lots of history. You can walk right up to and take good pics. Our tour guide gave the best information.  more »
