Edzna Archaeological Mayan Site Campeche
There some more like Calakmul, Becan, Chicanna but in my short vacation, I just visited Edzna Archaeological Mayan Site Campeche.
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.
I arrived around noon and the day was very sunny, humid and hot, so please use light clothe, cap or hat and a lot of sunblock.
Edzna buildings are enormous, principal building is like 40 metros height. I will write a little more in a few days ok? come back please.

Cenote Verde Lucero is like 18 kms from Puerto Morelos town, just drive by the principal road of the cenote road and look for the sign. you will see the parking area just a few metros from there and a few steps you will enjoy the cenote.
At the Cenote Route at Puerto Morelos there are at least 200 cenotes, some of them you can visit and have access from the principal road.
Cenotes, also known as sinkholes are the open area of the underground rivers that are at the Yucatan peninsula area. Some are very easy to get and some are inside the jungle or you need to go very deep in the cave to find the nice cold water areas.
I know, this photo is not great but is the only one that I have for now, that’s me 🙂
The cenote Verde Lucero has access only by stone stairs or jumping from the top (I didn’t jump).
It is a very nice place to enjoy one day of your vacations or you can enjoy part of the day here and then enjoy the beach that is just like 30 minutes from here at Puerto Morelos.
Cenote Verde Lucero general areas include bathrooms, chairs and palapas to enjoy the day. Also offer life jackets if you need it.
Open every day 9 am to 5 pm, cost like 150 pesos per person, you can (you must) bring your food and beverages.
There are a lot of ways to enjoy the Cenotes at Riviera Maya, check all the different choices that you have, you can go by yourself renting a car, like in this one, also there some where you can camp for a day or two. Or you can go on a day tour with a tour company where you can enjoy the activities with a group, enjoy great meals and drinks, and other activities on the day.
Come enjoy the Riviera Maya!
