Not crowded at all, but we ventured out to go to a series of cenotes. They were outstanding! Just follow the signs and be prepared to stay a few hours. We got finished with all three at dusk, which made driving back to Merida a little nerve racking.

There are many Mayan ruins in the Yucatán but these are very user friendly and not overflowing with tourists like Chichen Itza. Also, you can still climb the pyramid. Aguide is useful but not essential unless you want in depth history and greater details than the average guide book offers.

Astonishing ruins. But Murals are too damaged. I loved the visit and learned a lot from the mayan. Then visited cenotes nearby it was pretty cool.

We stopped on our journey to several cenotes in the area, just because we had time. So glad we did! There were 7 of us and just a handful of others. We sauntered about and climbed all the climable spots for a wonderfully relaxing hour and some. Views were fabulous. We were able to buy cold water there and the... More

Mayan (Banner of the Maya) was one of the last major capital, and was densely populated walled city. It existed after Chichen Itza - and the central area resembles Chichen Itza with a round structure (like the observatory) and a 'Castillo' with 4 staircases. The central core of this site has structures much closer together than most Mayan sites -... More

So nice. There are so many little buildings. A great place to explore if you're done climbing really high pyramids and your knees hurt. There's a lot to see, but it's all close in. There isn't anything that stands out as awesome. But there's so few people at any given time that it's a more interesting experience than many. Definitely... More

Fascinating place, our guide was very informative and took time to answer all questions, It's an all day trip as there is so much to see.its in the jungle region and gets really hot & humid, drink a lot of water if you can. They have a restaurant on site also changing rooms if you decide to take a dip... More

It was quiet and extensive: good stop when going on Ruta Puuc (a little off RP). We were glad we made the side trip.

We have lived in this region for years but never went to Mayapan, it's amazing. There are so few tourists that go here that's it's still lovely, no vendors in sight and clean!!! I hate to see it get congested but I will say, go if you get a chance.

Mayapan is an excellent example of Mayan Ruins. It is a quick bus ride to visit Mayapan or you can rent a car to visit several ruins on Ruta Puuc.
