MAYAN RUIN SITES

ARCHAEOLOGICAL MASTERPIECES THAT MAKE THE YUCATAN TRULY UNIQUE

It is the opinion of TravelYucatan.com that no particular ruin site is more important to visit than another.

Granted, some sites like Chichen Itza are much larger and grandiose, however even the smallest site can offer up some clue or evidence that may help you put the mystery together.

Each site is different and expresses the magnificence of the civilization that once flourished there. With a little bit of imagination one can be transported back to a time when the beauty of life was celebrated in every means possible by people in tune with their surroundings.

We do, however, offer sound advice in Recommendations to help plan your expedition accordingly.
