Great hands on exploration of an ancient Mayan ruin. Angel our tour guide from Lawsons was knowledgeable. We explored the site at our own pace and stayed as long as we wished.

Great ruins you can get to by car from Merida. There were literally three other cars the whole time we were there. We had a guide that helped us figure out what was what and we enjoyed climbing to the top.

Small park. No one was in area while we were there. Interesting buildings. We were able to climb all structures.

Mayapan is an excellent site to visit. Not crowded and where some actual color of the original structures can be seen where the sun has not bleached it away. Worth the trip out of Merida.

Mayapan is close to Merida and nicely restored. It was the last capital of the Maya and has a well-documented history. The cool thing is that if you go during the week, you will probably have it to yourself. Read up on it before you...More

Ditto. Mayapan is a stop you make when you have a car and are exploring on your own. It is beautiful, but, alas, the Catholics tore the pyramid down to build their churches. The ruins, however, are interesting and very... More

Yucatan Today magazine advises that all archeological sites are open 365 days a year 8am to 5pm. As for cenotes, there is no common ownership so I suggest you find the cenotes you want to visit and check their websites... More
