  • Uxmal at night is a good choice if you travel the "Puuc", as the last point. Access and ticket sales is from 6:00 pm, but the show starts at 7:00 pm, the show only lasts 45 minutes. You can record and use cameras without use flsh for not ruining the show. As it is an area with lots of vegetation bring repellent. The lighting is very basic, but more entertaining is to listen to the legends which are counted in the narration that offer a high cultural content and make your imagination until that time.

  • Fascinating attractions of a Mayan culture with great art and architecture, declared World Heritage site; surprises as they preserved them; the ruins or circuits are slowly recovering without losing their cultures. The guides are very good and speak the Mayan language.

  • Although the road is a bit long, the site worth it. There is not a ton of tourists, and besides, how big it is, we're scrambling not. The monuments are beautiful. On the other hand, it is very hot but there are trees. If there's time, it's to do
