Most of the Mayan sites restrict access to the buildings but not this one. No vendors to distract and parking is at the gate. As an archaeologist I recommend a visit.

Mayapan is less well known than the Chichen Itza ruins but they are beautiful Mayan ruins from around 800 - 900 AD. We visited these ruins as part of a tour with Juan from Yucatan Cenote and we enjoyed them greatly. A good tour guide...More

It is small, tidy, easy access for people who may not be able to walk as far as one needs to at some other ruins. Some super interesting stucco decorations still n existence, and one can climb all the pyramids. One tip: bring your own...More

One of the few Mayan ruins that has not become a circus. Tour at your own pace, enjoy the peaceful countryside. Signs explaining what you are seeing.

Not as impressive as Chichén Itzá but with its own attractions like the walkable Caracol, a Castillo you're allowed to climb and a unique floor painting.

On a previous visit to Merida, we took tours to Chichen Itza, Uxmal, Kabah and Celestun. This time we wanted to branch out and visit some of the lesser known sites. So we booked the Mayaland tour to Mayapan and the Caves of Loltun. All...More

Mayapan is a small site, but nevertheless with some impressive structures. It’s not far off the beaten path between Chichen Itza and Merida, so it’s worth the stop. Unlike Chichen Itza there was almost no one there, so we had the place almost all to...More

Mayalan was recommended by a local as the best smaller site with very few visitors, hence quiet. We visited the afternoon after the morning in Uxmal. While Mayapan id not to be compared to Uxmal, it wins in that there are so few visitors( NO...More
