Edzna archaeological Mayan site Campeche, is like an hour from Campeche city by car.

I took a short vacation in Campeche city. In my last day, after I walked around the hotel I asked to a person what else can I visit on this day, he said you need to go to Edzna.  I reply that there is no time, I’m going back tomorrow, I didn’t plan to go to Edzna, I didn’t make reservations with a tour agency and didn’t get up early to take the bus tour offered from the central park of the city. Then he said, you can go today and he gave me the instructions on how local people go to this site.

I walked to the local market, and there after asking to 3 or 5 persons, I took the Edzna “combi” or van, I paid like 7.50 pesos. The van was full and stop in every house, street and town, but was fun and I enjoy the music, the talk and the charming of the people around me.

If you don’t like to be in a packed van, I recommend you to take a tour bus.

When you arrive to Edzna you see a large palapa where the person in charge of the area explain to you about some of the objects that were there and gave you the map of the archaeological site.
