There were only two more Maya sites in Yucatan waiting to be crossed off my list. On the Friday morning, I left with Valentin, early, for the short journey southeast of Mérida, first to Acancéh and then Mayapan. I bought my admission from a gentleman on duty in the parking area before the church on the plaza and inquired the way to the Palace of the Stuccoes. It is located several blocks to the south on Calle 18. There is a fence in front to protect the site, and the official escorted me there and unlocked a gate to let me in. He then waited until I was finished to lock up again. From an examination of the construction it would appear that the palace, and later, other structures, dated from the early classic, say 300 - 600 CE. This view is from the northeast corner of the palace with the remains of a cenote to the front.
