All reviews mayan ruins main pyramid mini version large pyramid entire site maya site amazing site smaller site local guide own pace entry fee day trip awe inspiring archaeological site worth the trip yucatan peninsula chichen
Like Uxmal, these Mayan ruins are close to Merida, but not nearly as commercialized or crowded as Chichen Itza, which is a bit farther away. There were only a handful of other people on the grounds when we were there, and the place is beautiful.
We went there when our son and his fiance decided to have a destination wedding in Merida! (Go figure!). We had a great time! The ruins were amazing! Our tour guide was almost as old as the ruins themselves, but he did a fantastic job...More
More accessible than chicenitza (I am sure it is misspelled). Ruins are similar and you can climb to the top of the temple- where you can no longer climb at chichenitza. The view is spectacular. It was not overwhelmed with tourists. We traveled as part...More
This was GREAT! We rode in a air condioned bus with bathroom. The tour guide was AMAZING!!!! He even stopped off at a little place to buy us “cookies” (with his own money), which tasted more like crackers. He was very knowledgeable. They also had...More
Beautiful and interesting site, built by the ancient mayan culture more than 800 years ago, the archeologist believe this city originaly extended into aproximatly 10 miles, and they have found remains of more than 4000 structures in the city!! , we love to climb up...More
My daughter and I went on a mother/daughter cruise on Carnival to the Yucatan Peninsula and to Cozumel, Mexico. Both locations were very interesting with a lot of rich history. Loved in the dolphins in Cozumel and the history of the Mayan people. Would I...More
Went here as part of a bigger cruise excursion. This was my personal favorite part of the excursion. It was very well kept and you actually can climb the steps, for now anyway. Most ruins are visited so often they don't let you climb the...More
Very interesting and informative. Tours guides were excellent and very well educated on subject matter. Overall the tour is a bit rushed in order to get back to cruise ship. The ruins are amazing and you can climb to the top of the tallest structure....More

There is a cenote but is more like a cave and there is no swimming; maybe you are thinking of Dzibichaltun, where you can swim and you can bring your towels and back pack, there are bathrooms where you can change and I think they must have a storage since it's probable you cannot take your back pack into the museum.

Ditto. Mayapan is a stop you make when you have a car and are exploring on your own. It is beautiful, but, alas, the Catholics tore the pyramid down to build their churches. The ruins, however, are interesting and very peaceful. If you do go.... make sure to drive through muna and stop at mirador and visit Pedro & family. That is as much of a day tour as you would need! He has a cave, a Mayan prayer circle and He's awesome. ( and fluent in English)
One pyramid that never gets mentioned is the one right in the center of Izamal. It's free. And overlooks the Catholic Church that tore down its top tier. This was a highlight for me. It's the biggest in all the yucatan. If you prefer restored ruins ek balam is way better a trip than chitzen itza. Don't overlook labna. It was very cool, albeit small. No matter what you do.... make sure to see a few cenotes!
