PLEASE, no multi invitations in your comments. DO NOT FEEL YOU HAVE TO COMMENT.Thanks.
The visit to my last ruin is over and it is time to return the rental car. I have been asked which is my favourite site. The 27 Mayan Sites are listed below that I have visited and I have ranked the top 10 (to me), but every site is unique:
Copan #3 amazing stela, stairway and tunnels (my first site)
Tikal #4 one of the largest sites with tall pyramids and other structures over a large area.
El Mirador #10 has the largest pyramid on the planet and may someday be the greatest Mayan site, no highway access
Nim Li Punit
Caracol #2 an amazing site and buildings, not a busy tourist site, miles back in the jungle with a military escort.
Yaxchilan #5 the carvings on the door lintels are the most amazing Mayan carvings I have seen
Bonampak #6 The paintings are amazing and the best in the Mayan world
Palenque #1 fantastic number of great buildings and carvings in a park like setting.
Chichen Itza #9 has one of the great pyramids and more columns than any other site.
Ek' Balam #7 The tomb that is there is like nothing anywhere else in the Mayan world.
Uxmal #8 The Nunnery, pyramids and other structures are just amazing
