Prior to taking the Ultramar ferry from Cancun to Cozumel yesterday, Vickie & I visited Mayan ruins at Km 206 on Rte Mex 307 at Muyil. Uncrowded & beautiful but I wish I had bug spray!

Although small, Muyil Archeological site is a unique gem not far south of Tulum. The five-story castle and the pink temple are to the best of my knowledge unique in the Yucatán. After some time in the archaeological site, you can go down to Muyil...More

If you are in the Tulum area, these ruins are a much less crowded option than the Tulum ruins. There is not nearly as much to see in terms of ruins, but it is more immersed in the jungle, and also, there is the option...More
