Prepare to be awed!

Mayapan was built in the likeness of Chichén Itzá. The constructive style incorporated elements of the architecture from central Mexico, combined with inherited traits of the ancient Mayan cities. However, with the fall of Chichén Itzá, Mayapán would develop his own style oriented to reworking of the old ways. The main building of Mayapan bears the name of Castle, dedicated to the god Kukulcan.  From there we continue to the cenote called Nayah, located in Pixyah, its semi-open style facilitates watch a beautiful landscape, where we enjoy their sweet and crystalline waters.

Important!

Mayapán fue sede de la Liga de Mayapán, una confederación que reunía a los caciques de Uxmal y Chichén Itzá. Las disputas por el control de la confederación terminaron con la derrota de los itzáes que gobernaban Chichén, y su huida hacia el Petén, donde fundaron la ciudad de Tayasal. La hegemonía de la liga fue ejercida a partir de ese momento (final del siglo XIII) por los cocomes de Mayapán, aunque con fuerte oposición de los habitantes de los otros reinos mayas de la península. La Liga de Mayapán parece haber sido disuelta hacia el año 1440, cuando los cocomes abandonaron la plaza y se asentaron en Sotuta.
