Getting to know Mayapan

Mayapan was a capital of the Maya between 1200 and 1440 CE and one of the last sites to be inhabited prior to the arrival of the Spanish. The architecture at Mayapan is noticeably cruder than at other sites, suggesting that much of the art of stonework had been lost. However, Mayapan does have some of the most colorful and best-preserved of the Maya frescos in the Templo de Nichos Pintados and the Templlo de los Guerreros.

Our All-inclusive Visit

Victory guests will have a guided tour of this Mayan city, whose location off the beaten path often means we can explore without the crowds experienced at Chichen Itza and other sites.
