Due to the consequences of Hurricane Wilma in the 2005, the previous archeology museum in Cancun closed. It has been extended to have a new museum of Mayan archeology in a city clearly facing sun and beach tourism, night entertainment or Shopping, to the detriment of cultural tourism.
Maya Museum Cancun is located at kilometer 14 of the zona hotelera, and inside is the archaeological zone of San Miguelito. This good museum about the Mayan civilization is a place that is well worth a visit.
