  • The drive takes a while, but you go through some interesting towns. The site itself seems well managed and the runs are quite beautiful. We live in Merida and have enjoyed many of the ruins in Yucatan...  more »

  • It's amazing, the greatness of the mayan culture and in Edzna you can see it. Is important to know this place is bigger and you have to walk a lot! If you have student ID is for free.
  • One of the better archeological sites in mexico. We have been to a lot in the yucatan.
  • Excellent place with OK facilities, the buildings are stunning. If you are near the zone you should definitive put in your to do list. Mexico have a lot to offer, will you take it? If you are in Campeche city, you could use public transportation to get to this place. You can google it.
  • Loved it! There were few tourists onsite which was great for taking amazing pictures.
  • It was a much more enjoyable experience for me than going to the chichen itza, it's much more tranquil, and some of it is over 2000 years old. It gets very hot here though and so be prepared!
