An ancient Mayan city with a great deal of significance- the buildings are apparently known for their size and decoration. The site is very large and the first temple we came to had smooth walls and a flight of steps up the front, in contrast to others we have seen where the whole front consists of steps. Snakes are an... More

Went with a group, so we had a tour guide included. I liked going around the ruins, though the entrance was a bit pricier than I liked. It was definitely a great experience and not crowded. We went for the Light and Sound show later, which was basically telling a story with light effects in the big courtyard area of... More

Uxmal is a must see of all Mayan ruins. Stay for the show at night and watch the glyphs come to life. Spectacular and in wonderful condition

This is a beautiful site, and we were virtually alone when we visited around 9 on a Saturday. I highly recommend this site. While you cannot climb the main pyramid, there is one only slightly smaller you can climb for an excellent view of the jungle and ancient city below. I didn't see a single vender, and that added to... More

Very nice site, incredible history. Guides are $700 pesos each unless you speak Spanish, then they're only $600. I recommend going on a Sunday if you're a Mexican national, it's free then. Bring water, sunscreen, and a hat! :)

We really enjoyed exploring the ruins at Uxmal. The tour itself was about 1.5 - 2 hours long, then you are allowed some free roaming time. You can climb one of the pyramids at the back of the park, which is a truly magnificent experience that allows you to see for miles around once you have reached the top. Only... More

This was the best tour I have ever been on. I resisted hiring a guide at first as the price seemed high ($700 pesos), but my husband insisted, and I was thankful that he did. Our guide Daniel gave us amazing insight. It felt as if he was sharing his home with us. And what a place! This is a... More

I visited Uxmal with a private tour guide, so I was very fortunate in that he knows the history incredibly well. I was far more taken in with Uxmal than Chitzen-Itza (which is also spectacular). It is so well restored, and learning about the meaning of the architecture, carvings, and ancient life-style made this such an incredible experience. I also... More

Words can't fully translate and describe the astonishing ruins that was before our eyes. Whatever was written by fellow contributors I ditto all of 'em!

Quieter than many of the other sites closer to Cancun. Rural area where people were helpful and friendly. The ruins on the Ruta Puuc each have their own individuality. Well worth the journey.
