  • It is not far from Merida and is highly recommended to get closer. Very well preserved, the archaeological site isn't particularly crowded, especially if you compare with Chichen-Itza! Very good condition and easy to get lost among the centuries-old stones. There is also a nightly show of light and sound, also recommended.

  • Wonderful site, it's very hot predict water! Start on the right and at the end to not forget to make the round of the last buildings to the pyramid behind (view from above) at the entrance there are 2 tickets (one for the site, one for the contribution to the State). Toilet, drinks and entrance lovely shopping (embroidered clothing) that you won't see anywhere else.

  • I liked it better than Chichen Itza, actually. Nice and spread out. They allow you to explore freely. Only the main pyramids are off limits and we cannot climb on them.
  • Great arqueological site! If you want to experience the mayan culture and observe the buildings without being hassled by vendors trying to sell you a cheap overpriced souvenir come to Uxmal. Just as big as Chichen Itza but without the large crowds and pushy souvenir vendors. Plus you can climb some of the large pyramids and buildings. Really great site and very close to Merida.
  • Love learning about the Mayans. This was a great excursion. Uxmal is one of my favorite ruins to visit
  • Gorgeous! It is just different to any other archeological place. In the middle of nowhere and very peaceful I truly recommend this place.
  • I have no other experiences to relate to, but this trip was great! I booked with Carnival Cruise Lines and it was a hot, stinky bus after, but I still loved it. Standing on top of the steps and looking out into the forest was a sight I'll never forget. Such a humbling experience. So much history...
