Wonderful ruins. Very peaceful and best of all we had them nearly all to ourselves. Definitely worth the trip
Very compact archeological site with nice piramids and even two nice sculpted chaac faces (mascaron) puuc style. No juego de pelota. Very quiet site. Easy to reach by public transport (from Noroeste) say Mayapan Zona arch. not to be confused with Mayapan village. Bus stops right in front of the entrance.
Great site free from crowds of uninterested visitors and flocks of vendors. The site is defined well with explanations in Spanish and English. Some stucco and paintings survive but like many Maya ruins there has been some looting.

What a surprise to see such a nice sport with a 100% full conservation ! Looks like the past has been polished and starts to re-live again ! Being there is to feel to be part of the History !

Mayapan Ruins is one of the largest Maya Sites, the size of Chichen Itza and surrounded by many cenotes. It's not busy and you can climb the pyramid. Bring your water. $36 pesos per person
Loved this place! A small version of Chichen Itza without the crowds and just 30 minutes away from Merida. At one time, one of the most important Mayan cities. Highly recommended for a day trip from Merida.
