There are huge flat stones in this ruin, some used as overhangs and some collapsed! Can't imagine how the maya positioned them without equipment. Not very many temples here but a nice sidetrip in this village. There was a goat farmer rounding up his bleating...More

This will never approach the majesty of Chichen Itza or Uxmal, but if you are looking for a trip to take while staying in Merida or nearby towns, I HIGHLY recommend this spot. Please realize that these will never rival the better known ruins, so...More

Didn't get into the hacienda, but we did go see the Ake ruins. These aren't particularly grand or large, not anywhere close to Uxmal or Chichen Itza. But you are likely to have the place to yourself, and you can climb the steps of a...More
