  • Worth the drive as very close to Merida. Early morning is cooler and some ruins available for climbing.  more »
  • Uxmal is definitely under appreciate due to its closeness to Chichen Itzá. You must visit this ruins and enjoy the great views from the Casa del Gobernador! Don’t miss the Juego de Pelota  more »
  • Very interesting, educational, can't believe my ancestors built all these wonderful cities and the way they are oriented towards each other, amazing!  more »

  • 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...

Where to stay in Merida

Yucatan's capital and cultural hub offers a range of accommodations concentrated almost entirely around its historical center, offering convenient access to the architectural marvels and museums that make the city a popular destination. Look in the streets surrounding Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan for some basic but perfectly located budget-friendly options. If the center feels too full of tourists, head north to the less frenetic neighborhood of Montes de Ame, where you can find some laidback private rentals.
