The ruins of Uxmal are by far our family's favorite. There is a distinctly different flavor the the architecture, several interesting buildings including the rounded Magician's temple and the temple of the moon and the nun's quarters quadrangle with rooms surrounding. Not as touristy as ChinChen Itza, and fewer souvenir hawkers makes it a more pleasant experience. Get a guide... More

We arrived shortly after 8am and had the place to ourselves for a while. We were short on time so hired our own taxi driver to take us, wait and bring us back to Merida. Cost, without tip, 1200 Mexican pesos and it was well worth it for 3 of us. Drive was about 1 hour 15 minutes each way.... More

Simply amazing place. It's large complex of Maya ruins easily accessible from Ticul. There are a few paths that allow exploring temples and pyramids (actually it is still possible to climb the largest one). The place is not as crowded as Chechen Itza, so you may really enjoy your visit. Note that there are no outlets inside, so make sure... More

Uxmal is a place of serenity in the midst of the Yucatan jungle. The monumental remains, which date from the ninth and tenth centuries, are impressive // especially the so called wizard-s castle , which is a rather tall pyramid. The facilities for tourists are also extensive, as are the elegant hotels within walking distance, though were did not avail... More

This was our first visit and it was magnificent. We took the Sur bus from Merida and arrived about 10:30 am after an hour and a quarter ride. Not more than a quarter mile from the road to the visitor center. We sprung for a guide and spent about an hour and a half on the grounds. Caught the 3... More

One of the nicest of the Mayan Temples and one not to be missed. The renovation has been done so sympathetically and not overdone and they have left or planted trees around the area which adds to the mystic. It was very quiet there when we went so lots of photos with no people which was a bonus. Also one... More

i have been to Uxmal twice, once in 2010 and now in 2016. I paid about 500 pesos and then the entrance fee and fee for the light show. It is a great place to wander on your own, my guide was not very educated on the site, and he seemed more interested in flirting the Brazilan tourist than guiding... More

Some of the best example of Mayan architecture. The sheer size and scope of the area is truly awesome! The view from the Grand Pyramid is absolutely spectacular. The stone carvings are spellbinding when you think of how long ago they were done. Worth spending a few hours and when you're tired go across the road to the Chocolate Museum... More
