Contemplate Mayan architecture at Zona Arqueologica de Izamal. The archaeological site consists of five pre-Columbian structures, including two pyramids, two great temples, and a large building. Climb up the great pyramid, Kinich Kak Moo. Its base covers just under 1 ha (2 ac) and is dedicated to the Maya sun god. A climb to the top rewards you with panoramic views of pristine surroundings. Only the first third of the stairs have remained preserved, so bring tough shoes to traverse up the uneven rock to the top.

Free entrance to a Mayan ruin. No explanations given of what we were seeing and it had been rebuilt quite messily using concrete. Still, worth a visit if you're in Izamal.
