  • 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!

  • This ruined city was an absolute highlight. It comes through a small forest to the entrance, where is then suddenly do the imposing stone ruins. A great sight. In addition, it is very tourist-poor. In contrast to the Chichen Itza running over there we were the only tourists. HIGHLIGHT!

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Love it! this is the first mayan temple I have been to where the king lived there. Elvis is an excellent tour guide. We did not bring water because we thought we could get at Edzna, BYO because nothing there. only soda machine, $10 pesos for a coke.
  • There is a peaceful place
  • Pretty cool, sound effects are a must
