Fabulous experience. We visited Uxmal first thing in the morning. There was a sense of peace and calm amongst the ruins with lots of lizards around keeping an eye on us! We spent about 3 hours wandering around, looking at the amazing ruins. If you have a choice between Chichen Itza and Uxmal, go to Uxmal. By midday, there were... More

This is our first trip to the Yucatán, and we spent the day at Uxmal. A wonderful experience. Our family have been to Chichen Itza, and preferred the ruins at Uxmal.

We went to several other ruins, including Chichen Itza, and Uxmal is hands down THE BEST! In such amazing condition, the carving are gorgeous, and you can still climb one of the pyramids!

These ruins are definitely worth visiting if you're spending time in Mérida or Campeche. Many people ask if it's better to see Uxmal or Chichen Itza. They're different in themselves. We personally enjoyed Uxmal more, as it was more interactive and we were able to climb the main pyramid, while being able to walk around and inside mostly all of... More

It's a beautiful place to wander in, definitely needing a guide to explain. It is somehow spiritual not unlike Matchu Picchu. It is not nearly as crowded or hot as Chitchin Itza either

This is a large, well excavated and cared for site of ruins. Definitely worth getting a guide for historical and architectural details. Best done in morning as there is alot of walking and to escape the heat of the day. Very interesting and extensive site that is well preserved. One of the best in MX!

Older ruins than Chichén Ítza, with a different type of architecture. It is possible to climb in one of the pyramids.

The Uxmal site is definitely worth visiting if you can get there - I visited from Mérida. It's a massive site with a number of different buildings with intricate details, and a pyramid which you can climb that gives fantastic views of the other buildings and the surrounding jungle. Some tips for Uxmal: 1. GET THERE EARLY: The site opens... More

Vast site with many beautiful buildings. We went without a guide this time as we had a good guide book and had visited many sites before with excellent guides. We went quite deep into the more wild parts of the site where there is still much restoration work to be done. Apart from not being able to visit the museum... More

So much nicer than Chichen Itza! Not nearly as spread out. Kids climbed one of pyramids - thought it was a life highlight. Great views. Wonderful experience. Chichen Itza has hundreds of vendors selling blankets and salt shakers, blowing jaguar roar whistles. It's like a flea market. Uxmal has none of that nonsense.
