The ruins at Uxmal is amazing, we were there at 10am and it was not too crowded, we took a public bus from Merida for $55m, bus leaves the Ado bus terminal at 9:00 and 12:00 and return at 12:00 and 15:00.

We booked the Uxmal Ruins and Hacienda Ochil tour as a shore excursion through Carnival. Our guide, Julio, was extremely knowledgable, and we had ample time to explore the ruins on our own after a guided tour. It is hot and you will do a lot of climbing, make sure you take plenty of water and wear good climbing shoes.

We took a Shore Excursion offered through Carnival Cruise. Our guides, Julio and Mario, were great. The ruins were amazing and beautifully preserved, and pretty easy to manage/climb. There were no crowds to deal with. My only complaint was with Mother Nature, as it was sweltering the day we went.

The trip to Uxmal is well worth the visit--its a simple day trip from Merida, the cruise ship or Progreso on paved well-signed highways--I would recommend lots of water and definitely hire a guide---this attraction is better than Chichen Itza as it is not over-run by vendors who are not allowed inside the grounds as they are in Chichen Itza.

I loved these ruins. They were very amazing and wonderful to explore. You can spend most of the day here just enjoying walking around and climbing the ruins.

We only had time for one day trip out of Mérida at the end of our trip, and after hearing that Uxmal was a really impressive set of ruins, I chose this over the more popular Chichen Itza, and I am so glad I did. We got there a little after 10 in the morning and the place was hardly... More

If you're planning trip to western parts of Yucatan peninsula, definetely plan a trip to Uxmal ruins, located near city of Merida. It's really big and wild, compared to famous Chicen Itza complex. Uxmal consists of two main pyramids, one of which you an climb and get great view at the second pyramind and "jungle" surrounding it. There are'nt that... More

The gorgeous ruins at Uxmal are large, amazing and every bit as impressive as Chichen Itza. They are nowhere as busy either which is handy for taking pics without other tourists in them. A definite must do day trip from Merida!

We took the day trip to Uxmal & Kabah with Turitransmerida, a small group of 8 interesting people, and and excellent guide, Jorge. He made the day special with his explanations and insights. Even in high season, he expertly walked us through with hardly any interference from the few other groups there. The history here is amazing!
