Sayil in Yucatan in Mexico is a small archaeological site of Maya ruins built in the traditional Puuc style.
Quieter than the larger sites in the area such as Uxmal, Sayil offers a good place to see Maya structures such as its impressive palace and El Mirador temple, although there is less to see here than at some of the more famous sites.
Sayil is south of the city of Merida along the Puuc route. There are tourist buses that go along this route and organised tours can also be arranged (ask your hotel).
Sayil is open daily.
