Mayapán Archaeological Site


Mayapán, the last great city of the ancient Maya, reflects the influence of Chichén Itzá after its decline. With a population of up to 12,000 inhabitants, this walled city was founded thirteen centuries ago. It features notable buildings influenced by Maya-Toltec styles but with distinctive features, along with unexpected and valuable mural paintings.

Situated in the Yucatán Peninsula, Mayapán exerted dominance over the provinces in the northwest and central-north regions. Its strategic location and architectural marvels make it a significant archaeological site. The Maya Train route offers convenient access to explore this historical treasure and experience the rich culture of the ancient Maya civilization.

The site provides valuable insights into the political, economic, and cultural life of the ancient Maya. Explore Mayapán and uncover the mysteries of this ancient civilization, all accessible through the convenient Maya Train.
