The ruines are well conserved, there is no crowd so you can live feel and relax in it. I preferred Chichen itza but this is much better if you want to visit out of the crowd.

The Ruins of Uxmal is something definitely worth seeing, even if you have already been to Chichen Itza. One is allowed to climb on the pyramid here whereas that was banned in Itza. The ruins are located between Merida and Campeche, so if you are in the vicinity do ensure you pay a visit! The site is not as large... More

THIS WAS AMAZING!!!! It wasn't overcrowded. The people were friendly and guides were knowledgeable. Bathrooms were clean and lots of goodies to eat. Similar to Chitchen Itza in many ways but bigger. There is shade here, not a lot of vendors constantly harping you and you can still climb on the majority of the structures!. The view from the top... More

A must see and close to Merida. Worth the trip! Beautiful and peaceful, without bus loads of tourists.

It's the same as Chitchen Itza just bigger and you are allowed to crawl and mount the sighs. You can crawl an 80meter pyramid. We should have bought a guide. It would have costed 700pesos. There are more signs of information than at Chitchen Itza but still not enough.

Uxmal is a don't miss site for anyone interested in the Maya and/or birds of the Yucatan. You can stay in the shaded jungle edges for birds and walk out into the sun to see all the intricate details on the temples. We were surprised by the exceptionally clean and modern restrooms at the site. And our first morning hike... More

Most magnificent ruin I've seen on the peninsula. More ornate and peaceful than Chichen Itza. Not a tourist trap, and no hagglers. Very tranquil with places in the shade to sit and marvel at the architecture. Uxmal has a great nighttime sound and light show that has been around since 1975.

A remarkable ruin and worth the visit. A large and accessible site with access to climb on the ruins and guide options. Most people we ask say this is their favourite site and I know why. Don't miss it!

Nice tour by Jorge Mex ask for him - The Ruins are beautiful and a very relaxed atmosphere. Worth the extended trip to the heartland of the Puuc region
