Fodor's Review

The Kinich Kakmó pyramid is the largest pre-Hispanic building in the Yucatán, and it's all that remains of the royal Mayan city that flourished here between AD 250 and 600. Dedicated to Zamná, Mayan god of the dew, the massive structure is more remarkable for its size than for any remaining decoration; however, it's nonetheless an impressive monument. You can scale it from the stairs on the south face for a view of the cathedral and surrounding countryside.
