Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • Is the ruins went on tour. Morning is one thing but most tourists in sight, was chartered. You can see and climb the pyramid side jungle ruins alone there.

  • The ruined buildings are small compared to the imposing of chichenitza, but they are precious, here if you can climb to the top of them, are accomplished some awesome photographs if you dare to climb the structure most high. It is to highlight that only had a family visiting the place, to diferiencia of chichenitza always is full of tourists. TIP THAT I HOPE THEM HELP: don't go for the free carrerera, in terrible conditions

  • Among the major arqueologiche areas perhaps the least publicized, quite handy if you make the rounds of convents. is a small but beautiful city (for a time one of the capitals, after the fall of the Itza) presenting perfectly preserved many buildings, including the Observatory and the main pyramid, clearly very small scale compared to Chichen Itza. Its buildings are open to visitors cut short by clumping above. The entrance is cheap, but you won't find any services in addition to the bathroom. On the other hand you won't find almost no tourists over to you giving you the freedom to enjoy it as best suits you and try the wonderful feeling of having "private" ruins, all for you.
