Sayil is one of four Mayan sites within a 30-minute drive of Uxmal. It is the first in a series of 3 in a row. Definitely not as spectacular as Uxmal, but has one large ruin with some interesting figures, and a variety of smaller ruins scattered through the forest. The latter give one a feeling of discovery, since they are in very small clearings in the forest. One is able to easily combine cultural and ecotourism, especially birding, and it is definitely not crowded. Especially in winter, when mid-day temperatures are milder, one can easily combin Sayil with some of the other nearby sites. as always, one will see more birds with an early arrival.
