This is a fabulous Maya ruin. Lots to see. There is even part of it at the side of the road as you travel to Campeche from Merida. Very much worth the time to stop and explore.

If you want to avoid the crowds to see the ruins, here is your best choice, when we arrived, no tourists there. It’s simple, but so beautiful

There are two ways to Oxkintok from Rt 180. One is to exit 180 to Muna-Maxcanu road and then make a sharp right onto a dirt road. The shorter (and better) one is to take the other end of this dirt road right from Rt...More

Most of the road to this site off the Muna-Maxcanu road is fine - the road narrows and is dirt as you near the site. Restrooms available - admission charge is under $50 MEX. per person

Oxkintok is a very large Mayan city... mostly covered by jungle. It does have some central buildings, palaces and even a small ball game. Its beauty lies in the nature overtaking the old buildings and in a unique setting where you are very much alone....More

The ruins are interesting and very reasonably priced (MXN$50 each adult). However the absolute highlight for is by far was finding the guide Victor outside who took us to an incredible grutas. Not on the tourist trail. With petroglyphs, Welton bones, carvings, a natural place...More
