I went to Muyil with a friend this week. We found a DIY article online and it worked out perfectly. The ruins are really cool and very ancient and we were the only people there. It was 40 pesos/person to get into the ruins. Once...More

Although small, Muyil Archeological site is a unique gem not far south of Tulum. The five-story castle and the pink temple are to the best of my knowledge unique in the Yucatán. After some time in the archaeological site, you can go down to Muyil...More

If you are in the Tulum area, these ruins are a much less crowded option than the Tulum ruins. There is not nearly as much to see in terms of ruins, but it is more immersed in the jungle, and also, there is the option...More

Don't book a guide or tour group this place is easily explored on ones own. This is such an impressive site. You can't help but whisper while you're there as you feel so in awe. We have seen many sites in past years, Ruins de...More

Captain Snake is awesome, for a 34 year old he is extremely knowledgable. Probably the best tour i have had in 8 years of coming to the Yuchatan

Forget booking a guide and tour the site at your own leisure. The site is quite large, with many examples of ancient Mayan architecture. Great for all ages, and a must to see if traveling around Quintana Roo.

We were there in November and were able to access the biosphere on our own through the ruins of Muyil. Not sure about tour operators.
