Introducing Ruta Puuc
Just 5km south of Kabah on Hwy 261, a road branches off to the east and winds past the ruins of Sayil, Xlapak and Labná, ending at the Grutas de Loltún. This is the Ruta Puuc, and its sites offer some marvelous architectural detail and a deeper acquaintance with the Puuc Maya civilization, which flourished between about AD 750 and 950.
The most convenient way to visit the Ruta Puuc sites is by car; however, there is a reliable bus service that tours the route daily as well.
