Mayapan Mayan Ruins, Merida

(4.7/5 based on 380+ 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. To visit Mayapan Mayan Ruins and get the most from your holiday in Merida, create itinerary details personal to you using our Merida tour planner.
