  • Visited this place in January, closer to closure (came to 3:00 pm) and people there almost wasn't that very nice neighborhood to walk and take pictures without crowds of people quite a large complex, on one of the pyramids you can climb. If you travel by car, I advise to visit this place. There is a hotel and restaurant

  • Uxmal for me was the most beautiful site I have visited. Our guide Pedro explained very well all the structures and the Mayan culture. The site is very nice and not crowded like other sites. Inside don't find talking bathrooms talking stalls (bring enough water).

  • What a fantastic place! The buildings are not only in excellent condition but you can also move up or almost anywhere within view (great temple). Very suitable for children. Less visitors than chitzen itza and no sales stalls. Starting from the rear high temple you have a fantastic view of the complex. The stairs is quite steep, watch out with descend;)
