We checked in early at The Lodge at Uxmal (a Mayaland Hotel property, which is located next to the archeological site). The concierge (Luis) was very fluent (English/Spanish/Mayan) in all the offerings and consistent in his desire to up-sell us, but not too pushy. After...More

Wonderful archeological site, really incredible! You can visit it in peace as there are almost no tourists! The site is not so easy accessible, we went there on our way to Merida, with a hired car. The entrance fee is also quite high, but it...More

If you're into seeing ruins and history, this is your spot to go to-you can enter in the rest of ruins but not the temple unfortunately-BOO! Sucks because it closed off due to people going up there and peeing from the top of the pyramid...More

We found these to be quite stunning but you aren't allowed to enter into the temple as it's closed off to public! Other than that, you can visit the rest of the ruins -which are literally that-ruins. Not much to see but if someone is...More
