Stretching along the banks of a coastal lagoon and dominated by the 17-meter-tall El Castillo, one of the region’s tallest pyramids, the little-visited Mayan ruins of Muyil are undeniably photogenic and make a unique alternative to the nearby sites of Tulum and Coba. 

Set on the edge of the Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve, Muyil is a worthwhile detour for hikers and there are a number of significant ruins to explore, as well as an observation tower, offering views over the neighboring lagoon, and boat rides around the lagoon. The ancient settlement is estimated to have dated back to as early as 300 BC and remaining structures include the ‘Sacbé’, a five-meter-wide ancient road, and the ‘Pink Palace’, renowned for its well-preserved stuccos.
