Would you ever think that there’s a town in this world where every single building is painted golden yellow? That’s the beauty of Izamal. Here, pre-hispanic buildings coexist with interesting colonial architecture and invite the visitors to discover how these people managed to nurture their culture for so many centuries.
It gets better: there’s a highly important Mayan religious center and recently found pyramids that were hidden in the jungle for many years, but now they’re open to being explored. One of the most relevant ones is Kinich Kakmo, a pyramid that was built for the Mayan sun God. Visitors have the option of climbing all the way to the top to enjoy the breathtaking view.
