Just off the highway, easy to get to, but still felt undiscovered, as just few tourists were there at midday, all the better, as the place is amazing, so well preserved and maintened, on a par with Uxmal, but scaled down, modestly priced and yes,...More

My brother and I visited the Mayapan Mayan Ruins before visiting any of the other historical sites, and we were very impressed with them. Even having visited all the other well known sites such as Chichen Itza and Uxmal, though impressive, we particularly enjoyed Mayapan...More
