Mayapan is a little known ancient Mayan ruin near Merida in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. We had a nice visit and one of the best parts was that we had it almost to ourselves – we only saw one other couple there the whole time of our visit. Mayapan was the last great Maya capital that fell just a few years before the Spanish conquest of the area.
Below are pictures from our trip. After the pictures, you’ll find links to more information, including a detailed description from our visit and tips on how best to see it yourself. I also provide a link to a page where I rank Mayapan in amongst all the other ancient Mesoamerican sites I have seen. Give them a look.
