This site is easily as impressive as Chichen Itza but has the added benefit in that you can climb the Great Pyramid and get a fabulous view of the entire site with the Pyramid of the Magician popping up through the trees. The site was virtually deserted when we visited and there's a nice shop area at the entrance with... More

Go with a guide who can explain and interpret the history and symbols that surround you at the Temples of Uxmal. The restoration is amazing and fascinating to learn the history of a long forgotten people.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. There were no huge crowds nor any wandering pushy people trying to sell things so this place was something we were able to explore and enjoy in peace at a leisurely pace. Being able to walk around at our leisure, we were able to take our time and really take in all the details... More

We were really looking forward to revisiting this site, we were not disappointed. The main pyramid still has its WOW factor even though we had already been. The site is so beautiful and so full of different cravings and buildings we were still seeing new things. Uxmal is easier to view than Chichen Itza because the buildings are closer together,...

Similar size to Chichen itsa, but the details on the ruins here are much more intricate. Great site to visit, well worthwhile

We hired a van and driver in Merida from Yucatan-Connections and had him pick us up at 8 am to try to beat the heat. We arrived before 9:30 and hired an English- speaking guide, "Gama", for the rate of 700 pesos, or about $50 US. He was native to the area, spoke excellent English, and was extremely passionate and... More

My wife and I drove ourselves to Uxmal, on the recommendation of a fellow traveller (otherwise we'd have missed it!). Beautiful, stunning and not over crowded Wear some decent shows and go climb around the site....breathtaking!

Visit Uxmal in peace: take in the grand landscape of this once huge Mayan city with a better cultural understanding of the peoples ... without the long lines, rows of tour buses and local hawkers bombarding you with their wares. The few extra hours south of Merida to Uxmal (on a good road) is so worth it. The House of... More

We were here for about 3 hours and filled our time completely walking around and learning. There were so many structures that you could climb and see. It was just amazing. Our tour guide for our group talked a little much for me so my husband and I just went off on our own. It looked like the teens and... More

This is a must see matan ruin location. Build pre Chichen Itzá THe ruinas shows a Classic mayan architecture , if you can stay to the night lights show. The show its in Spanish but the ruins look amazing during the night. Try to arrive at 6:00 pm to get the best seats at the 1st row.
