Owner description: All the tombs are above ground at this cemetery which marks graves in a variety of ways, some with brightly colored miniature churches and others as mounds with name-bearing crosses or piles of fire-blackened rocks.

The Mayan cemetery, as the photos show, is a riot of color. Here again the traditional Mayan blends with the Catholic. There is a constant parade of incense burners, candle lighters, small animal sacrifices, shaman and just the faithful.
It is definitely a must see.

Our guide took us around, but, at times the people performing the rituals seemed angry at the unwanted visitors. The general scene reminded us of the cemeteries in New Orleans. Worth a quick look, but it's an average attraction.
