These ruins are very cheap to get into & there is free parking but the only main highlight is the palace which is the first ruin you come to. The other ruins further in the paths of the jungle are nothing special. If you want to go for a hike and it's cool outside head into the paths; otherwise skip... 更多
This is another low cost admission gem in the archeological zone. The admission was only 50 pesos and ample free parking. I will say there is a fairly long walk to the smallest buildings at the far end. I recommend you bring some extra water as there is no place after the very tiny gift shop at the entrance to... 更多
The palace is truly breathtaking! When you come around the corner and first see it, it really takes your breath away, How marvelous it would have been to have seen it in its full grandeur. This site is definitely worth a stop, The other ruins at the site are very spread out and not too impressive. There is a VERY... 更多
We visited four sites on the Ruta Puuc in the same day and it was so worth it. Sayil was extremely beautiful and truly gave one the experience of stumbling upon the ruins in the wild for the first time. Lovely.
I visited the Sayil Ruins on the morning of November 24th with a friend, as part of our two-day road trip from Merida (second day). We stayed the night at The Pickled Onion B&B in the Mayan village of Santa Elena and then drove our rental car from there to the Sayil Ruins. The highway was quiet and there was... 更多
It is estimated that Sayil had a population of approximately 17,000 during 800 – 1000 A.D. and was inducted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. When you enter this site, you will see, under an outdoor palapa, some interesting artifacts and carvings (a “mini-museum”). The hiking loop is along a well-maintained gravel path and is mostly under a... 更多
If you have to skip a site along the Puuc Route, this would get my vote. The most impressive building is pretty close to the entrance. I wish we had paid more attention to the layout, as we walked and walked and walked to see more. Not sure if the path makes a big loop or not, but we headed... 更多
Of course, everybody will tell you that Chichen Itza and Uxmal are richer and more beautiful, but they can be so crowded, that it can ruin the experience. So, to refresh your mind, do not hesitate to schedule a visit to Sayil (not to forget Kabah and Labna), a lovely little temple. Come at the opening and, apart from the... 更多
