    The site is located has 30/40 minutes from Merida and worth a visit. Located 2 km from the sea and in the middle of wetlands vegetation gives a special charm has these ruins. Xcambo is a small site but with several interesting structures. The central square almost seems compressed with so many temples and pyramids. One of it also has rest of decoration. Allow one hour on site and above all take a mosquito repellent.

Where to stay in Merida

Yucatan's capital and cultural hub offers a range of accommodations concentrated almost entirely around its historical center, offering convenient access to the architectural marvels and museums that make the city a popular destination. Look in the streets surrounding Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan for some basic but perfectly located budget-friendly options. If the center feels too full of tourists, head north to the less frenetic neighborhood of Montes de Ame, where you can find some laidback private rentals.
