My favorite archeological site thus far. It is a very small site and the staff is so friendly. It feels like entering a different world. Compared to all the other archeological sites in the area, this one doesn't have any vendors or tourist traps. Encountered...More

After an unpleasant visit to the Tulum ruins (along with approximately 23,647 other people), Muyil was a breath of fresh air. The ruins were beautiful, lush, and, most importantly, NOT CROWDED. That last part is increasingly hard to find in Tulum.

While the ruins are not as impressive at the larger sites, they are just as interesting and much more enjoyable for the lack of crowds. The float down the Mayan built canals was the most relaxing interlude of the vacation and I will definitely try...More

The boat tour was the best part. The ruins are small and amazing but wear a bathing suit and do the boat tour.
