Very different from Kabáh. Youamazement can not see one ruin from the other, so there are quiet walks thru the jungle. I liked that most of the ruins are not restored. It made me feel I was discovering them. On tours where you are rushed...More

Don't miss this site. Especially the well preserved palace is worth going. On top of this the site is not very crowded.

Sayil is an excellent site but if you're pressed for time you can see the North Palace only and skip the rest as the remaining edifices are not as grand, not fully excavated/restored, and the site's area is pretty big and walking from one building...More

Unless you are deep into Mayan history and culture, the Palace which is in the picture, is really the only grand structure. The trails from into the jungle from one structure to the next give you a decent amount of exercise but are by no...More

Sayil is a Puuc site, south of Santa Elena (and between Kabah & Xlapak, Labna). If spending a day looking at Kabah & Xlapak & Labna, this place should be a short stop. It is not as re-constructed as some of these other sites, but...More
