Visiting the Kabah Ruins in Yucatan

Are the Kabah Ruins worth visiting?

The Kabah ruins can be found south of Merida and are the second largest of the Puuc region, after Uxmal. The ruins of the ancient Mayan town once held a population of 10,000. Structures were constructed around 800 AD and include the Palace of Masks, the Temple of Columns, and sacbeob totaling dozens of miles in length.

By far the most famous structure you will encounter on a trip to Kabah is Codz Poop, the Palace of the Masks, which is decorated with 300 stone masks depicting Chaac, the God of Rain. The carvings are incredibly detailed and the reproduction of the same image across so many masks has never been seen at another ruin in the Yucatan.

The entrance fee to the ruins is 55 pesos and the site is open from 8:00am to 5:00 every day.

Getting to the Kabah Ruins

The Kabah Ruins are a 5 hour drive from Cancun. You will likely make the trip to these ruins from the city of Merida, 60 miles away. Kabah can be visited as part of a series of ruins on Ruta Puuc, a road that includes the ruins of Labna, Xlapak, Sayil, and Uxmal in addition to Kabah.
