Clean, calm, well maintained and breathtaking these ruins are what Chichen Itza should be. Guides are available in multiple languages and there is a multi Language book shop. No flea market clutter here!

One of the most impressive mayan site of Yucatan. Very well preserved pyramids. The area is big so you have to consider half a day for visiting it. A little bit less crowded than Chichen-Itza but come early for a better experience (before the tourist buses).

This place is a hidden jewel of the Mayan Ruins. This is where mayan civilization also tookplace and continued along the peninsula. This is a place in which everyone should go see. Not sure why this is not an advertised place when it has a lot of history as well. A must see.

This was our first Mayan site. It is not huge but big enough! 3 to 4 hours is a good length of time for the visit. The remains are well presented and there are plenty of English speaking guides available for the tour. We did not go on a bus tour. Huge crocodile chains of 50 people who always have... More

not that Chichen Itza wasn't amazing, but there was a different feeling at Uxmal. we had a better guide and a smaller tour. it was much less crowded and less touristy. but still impressive and beautiful. the ball court here was better, and you can climb the big pyramid! the complex is vast with a lot of different structures. glad...

Of all the Mayan sites we visited in Mexico Uxmal left the best impression. Its less crowded than some others, has areas you can climb. It doesn't have the street vendors inside the site. You can take this at your own pace and its huge. Some parts are in better condition than others and it pays to get there early.... More

We visited Uxmal and Chichen Itza in July-August 2014. If you only visit one site, choose Uxmal. There is more shade, no vendors, air-conditioned spaces, and unlike Chichen Itza, you can climb on, walk through, and touch almost all of the buildings. Reserve some $ for a Mayan tour guide- a MAYAN tour guide! The site is like a park-... More

Of all the Maya cities we visited whilst in Mexico, this had to be one of my favourites. The style of the magician's pyramid is different from anything else we saw, with it's curved 'corners', and solid, uncluttered style. The whole site is well preserved or restored so it is easier to understand the workings of the city than in... More

We enjoyed this visit very much. Uxmal is very different from other temples we saw earlier. You can climb on top of one of the temple and have a great view. Uxmal is not to be missed! The chocolat museum is next to the parking of Uxmal and also worth a visit.
