Mayapan is considered one of the last standing city states of the Mayan population of the Yucatan. It is similar to many other Mayan archeological sites but on a smaller scale. It is a informative visit to understand the layout of all the traditional structures...More

The Mayapan ruins were the last ruins my family and I visited on our most recent Yucatan visit. It is easily located about 45-60 minutes from Merida. The ruins are interesting, well maintained, fairly flat and easy to visit. As others have noted there are...More

We enjoyed these ruins, not as extensive and large as Uxmal, but still impressive. You are able to explore and see most of the ruins at your leisure. It was not crowded which added to the enjoyment.

It is much smaller than the crowded and very commercialized sites like Uxmal and Tulum. The pyramids are more in their natural state and it is still possible to get a hands on experience. We climbed several of the structures and got amazing pictures. The...More

The Mayapan Ruins are an incredible experience. It is one of the less visited ruin sites when compared to Chichen Itza or Uxmal as it is more difficult to travel to. My group hired a taxi driver for the entire day to go site seeing...More

Only about 40 minutes from downtown Merida, these ruins are the same age as Chuchen Itza, but a smaller over acreage. However, amazing to see the temples, sacrificial altars, and important buildings and the open yard. Some original paintings on the stucco can be seen....More

This place is really close to Merida. Is not as crowded as Chichen Itza so you can see all the ruins with no pressure. You can also climb them but be careful not to fall since there is no medical aid at the place.

It’s rather in the sticks. A site with very little cover so you really don’t want to be searching for a ride home. Ask around for a recommendation for a taxi,or tour. We paid 1600mxd for a taxi from Merida to Uxmal, 2 other... More
