Traveling in October & late in the day we had the entire convent to ourselves. The architecture is beautiful {circa 1562-1700s}. Our quiet peaceful self guided tour was wonderful. Great views of the City and spots for picture taking. A must do in Izamal.

The city is pretty, and is a nice walkthrough. Climb the local ruin for a great view! The local markets are nice afterwards for coconut water and souvenirs.

I was there and the grass was very yellow. I think the grass gets the water from the rain, so it depends of the time you visit. The place is nice. Since there's no much to do in Izamal, this is a must.
