There are so many Mayan sites in the Yucatán you might be excused from thinking you have to fit in every one, but this one and the entire visit to Izamal are well worth it. The town is a sweet little gem and the several pyramids are impressive,
Here there are still places open to climb and touch the ruins. Some are located in the yards of the villagers. They may invite you home to come see them. The culture here is pure and sweet. If you do not speak the language...hire a guide who can show you around. This is a jewel hidden behind a veil of... 更多
When you reach the top you can see the other attractions of Izamal poking out of the treetops so it's worth the climb. And good exercise. Plus it free so why not!
There are a number of ruins in Izamal. The main pyramid is quite massive; you only realize how big it is once you have climbed to the intermediate platform and notice that there is one more pyramid still to go. There are several other ruins around the city - not all of them are currently open for viewing. It is... 更多
Visited with MexiGo Tours fro Valladolid. Having climbed many Mayan Pyramids we have to say this one was amazing. Some of the steps are gone but you can still reach the top as we did.(aged 68 and 71 years old) Much older than Chichen Itza and in some ways more remarkable as it was a Maya pilgrimage site and was... 更多
Izamal is about 1 hour east of Merida, on the way to Chichen Itza. It is a beautiful town where nearly all of the buildings are painted a golden yellow, including the large church and church courtyard walls. There are Mayan pyramids in the town--you just walk across a street and climb up!
nothing special but if you are in Izamal a must. Short walk from the center and not to hard clmb - actualy climbing the piramide is the thing to do there as usually it is not allowed to do that. Nice view as well
It's not spectacular but it is okay. We climbed to the top and had great views of the surrounding area. The climb up is a bit steep so be careful of your footing. A lot of people were sliding down part of it on the bums.
When visiting Izamal, you must visit the ruins located within the city limits, just blocks from the Convento and the main square. The ruins are free to visit, and you can climb to the top. Five huge Pre-Columbian structures are located near Izamal, with two right in the city. The great pyramid to the Maya Sun god, Kinich Kak Moo... 更多
The Spanish parts of this town were built ON the Mayan parts- no messing around when it came to subversion here. This temple, however, survived and is probably the highest point in Izamal- the views are incredible! It's a short (10 min) walk from the town plaza, then another 5-10 min up and up and up to the top-- wear... 更多
