Visiting the ruins is a day trip from Merida and well worth it, We woke early (5:00 am) and took to local bus there, arriving at 7:30 before the site opened at 8:00 am. We were the only people there! We explored the site for almost 2 hours and did not see one other person. It was so worth getting... More

We visited Uxmal early in the morning. Nine o clock at the gate. With us just a few other visitors. Experience the emptiness and the beautiful, well maintained, ruins of Uxmal during these first hours with hardly any other visitors. Marvelous! As you are allowed to climb certain temples/ruins, the views over the area and the whole complex of ruins... More

We spent 6 hours touring the ruins, and what an amazing experience. I can not understate the scale and impresiveness of the Uxmal ruins. And almost every part is still accessible, unlike Chichen Itza. Uxmal is a 1000x better than Chichen, and is worthwhile going out of your way to visit. Chichen Itza has become a giant flea-market with everyone... More

My wife and I visited Uxmal ruins earlier this month while vacationing in Yucatan. We first saw Chichen Itza on a Saturday morning, then visited Uxmal the following Monday morning. What a difference! Here at Uxmal, the temples and other buildings are more approachable and (except for Sorcerer's Pyramid) all are climbable. They are well curated, and the signs explain... More

We drove from Cancun to Merida and stayed one night in Merida. The next morning close to 8:00AM, we drove to the Temple of Uxmal. When we got there, there were not many people and it was nice and not hot. We stayed there for about 2.5 hours then left. By the time we were leaving, many people (tours )... More

One of the best spots to visit mayan ruins in Yucatan. The place is less touristy but totally worth every second I had there! There is less people and a more natural feeling, so you can get a better experience there. The park is huge and the ruins are amazing, plus you can climb some of them and have a... More

Uxmal about an hour south of Merida by car well marked with signs once you are on the main road. Large complex with varied buildings and monuments showing different styles and periods. Restoration lets one's imagination wonder about how they lived at how developed the early Mayans must have been. This is the largest and most expensive site in the... More

There were no lines here, and it was so open. This place was incredible. They let you climb up one of the Mayan pyrimids and then let you explore on your own. I was so glad I went here. Highly recomend if your into the adventure.

Spent the entire day exploring these ruins and still did not get my fill. Enjoyed the experience of climbing and exploring them. There were people there but nowhere near the amount at Chichen Itza. The lack of vendors inside the ruin area was a definite plus. There were shops and facilities outside the park is you wanted. Absolutely my favorite... More
