We love exploring ruins, so we made sure to check out the Maya archeological sites on our cycle route from Mérida to Tulum. Here they are in order from west to east…
We rated the cities we cycled through in The Yucatan, Mexico based on sights to see, affordability, food and accommodations.
After walking around Izamal to see the Convento and the Kinich-Kakmó pyramid, we cycled the scenic route to Chichen Itzá… which dead-ended at a goat path with actual goats.
We left Merida for Izamal and took a scenic detour to the Aké ruins – which turned out to be one of the best and worst parts of this ride!
