AAA Editor Notes

Kinich Kakmo Pyramid (Pirámide Kinich Kakmo) is about 4 blocks n. of the plaza. In the Mayan language, its name means “Solar-Faced Macaw of Fire.” Kinich Kakmo is one of Mexico's largest pyramids—some 115 feet high and almost 660 feet wide. It sits in the middle of town; there are houses just across the street. Looking more like a symmetrically shaped hill than an excavated, restored pyramid, one of its four sides is covered with a thick green matting of tangled underbrush. Climb to the top for a panoramic view of the surrounding area.
Hours: Daily 8-5.
