    An impressive site where you walk around alone. Beautiful buildings which are still well preserved. Only 55,-pesos entrance fee. They are not always on the opening and closing hours.

    Easily accesed from Campeche by colective, Edzna was one of my favorite ancient sites in Mexico. I was surprised that there were very few tourists there when I was there, but that made it even better....  more »

    Within the framework of our 5-day Yucatán trip, we visited also Edzná (approx. 2 hrs drive from Campeche). We were the only tourists during our 2-hour stay. What a treat after Chichén Itzá! Edzná is beautiful, the pyramid on the "Acropolis" is particularly impressive. We were thrilled - one of the highlights of our trip!

    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.

    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!
