The site is fairly small, only three groups of buildings have been cleared, one edifice nicely restored. Should take you from 45 minutes to an hour to see. It's part of the Puuk Route. Free entry.

A small site that doesn't offer iconic buildings like Labná or Sayil, but if you're in the area you should pass by. Even if it's just to enjoy some Puuc architecture without the crowds.

Not too special maya site, only a few nice structures there. Very nice to walk around the path through the forest to see the ruins there for 15-30 minutes though... as you'll probably have the free site to yourself!

There is only one main ruin to see here, but it is a nice structure. The entrance is free. If you have time while touring the Puuc route, stop, If you're pressed for time, you won't be missing much.

We saw Xlabak on the same day as three other Ruta Puuc sites. It was the least 'impressive', but the natural environment was incredibly beautiful. Surprised a woodpecker at work on an ancient tree. Terrific photo opportunities.

I visited Xlapak on the morning of November 24th with a friend as part of our two-day road trip along the Ruta Puuc. The ruins were located a short drive along the narrow but newly paved highway. The road was very quiet. There were some...More

This ancient Mayan city was known for its trade of wax, honey, salt, feathers and cotton. It is thought that Xlapak was inhabited from approximately 800-1000 A.D. This small archaeological site has 3 partially restored structures and 14 “mounds” not yet excavated/restored. The hiking loop...More

Xlapak is certainly a small site and tends to be talked down in the guidebooks, but the ruins are worth a look and the surrounding woodland is delightful, though actually we saw more birds at Labna. We were the only visitors and i doubt if...More
