We rented a car and left from Merida to the ruins of Uxmal and the Ruta Puuc. We opted to see Uxmal rather than the more famous Chichen Itza. We had done a lot of research and read that Uxmal was less busy and quite spectacular. They were right. Not too many crowds and we were able to roam freely... More

These ruins weren't so full od turists as Chichen Itza so we were really able to take it all in. It also helps to arrive at 8 a.m. when it opens as most crouds arrive a bit later, so you have the site almost to yourself. Mosquito repelent is a must, a bottle od water as well. Humidity is high...

Not as many visitors as Chichen Itza. Some of the temples you are still allowed to climb. Nice view from the top. Great day out, can be difficult to visit without a car. Use bus from Merida, takes about an hour and a half and only 4 or 5 per day.

We stayed in Merida and had a car, so we made a day trip to Uxmal, trying to arrive early, to beat the heat and the crowds. It's a fairly extensive complex, and one could spend many hours exploring all of it. We had just been to Chichen Itza with an excellent guide, and thought we would try this on... More

The ruins of Uxmal are worth a visit. Although they recommend Chichen Itza which is now overflown by tourists, Uxmal preserves an understated beauty one can enjoy with more intimacy and tranquility.

One of the best tours ever. So much info about the Mayan culture. Great setup. Easy to get around and everyone was so helpful. Smaller than Chichen Itza but a better experience.

It's the opportunity to climb upon and touch history. It was mind boggling. It is still being excavated, but plan on a couple hours to experience it. Our family booked a private tour guide through Lawsons Yucatan, and at first I thought it was overpriced ($100 per person) based on group tours available, but by the end of the day,... More

We've been here in October 2015, so in the low season. We really enjoyed our visit to Uxmal. You won't find the site as packed with tourist stuff as you do in Chichen Itza. After the entrance gate there are not souvenir vendors anymore, just the jungle and the ruins. The remains of the pyramids are really impressing, you can... More

A very impressive Mayan settlement ruins , definitely rising from the jungle higher than Chitchen Itza. You can climb up the pyramid of the governors house and admire the views

Had a fantastic experience touring this archaeological site, it was big enough to wander around but not too expansive. We saw several Mayan sites on our tour and this was one of the quietest and as such a ore authentic experience allowing you to experience the wonder of the architectural achievement. It was a very hot day when we were... More
