“Compressed Chichen Itza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Beautiful place with restoration in progress. There are several large structures intact. Recommend you review the layout on the internet. One of the few places where you can still climb to the top of the main pyramid. 35 peso entry fee and very few people take the time to visit. No crowds and no peddlers. A few murals have survived time and elements as has some of the stucco coating; gives a better impression of how they must have looked in their prime. If you are in the area, this is a must do in addition to Uxmal and Kabah.

“Mayapan the great ruin off the beaten path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We got there about 3:30 on a Wednesday. There were no other tourists to compete with at that time. It is bigger than Chicen Itza and as not commercialized. It closes at 5:00. This was well worth the time. Take the time to do some history search before you go.

“Early Bird”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

The ruins are wonderful. My tip is to go as soon at the park opens. No one is there, you will have the site to yourself. Towards noon and thereafter it becomes quite crowded.

“Beautiful site with no tourist buses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We did not plan to visit Mayapan but just stopped when we drove by ... And stayed for almost two hours! The site is really a lot bigger than we tought and we were more or less the only tourists there. Mayapan is really worth a visit if you have time.
