  • 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!
