We visited the site early so it was fairly quiet when we arrived and saw the House of the Magician which was very impressive. Little did we realise what even more impressive structures were to come. We were free to wander over the site and ruins (no hand rails though). A visit to the light show in the Nunnery quadrangle... More

I have been to many countries in my time (don't judge me by my tripadvisor I'm very bad at writing reviews, this one is 5 years old!!) but this has remained my absolute favourite. I don't think I will able to do justice the amazing experience I had here. We stayed in the little hotel over the road and were... More

We have been to quite a lot of the Mayan ruins sites and this was our favourite. It is a large site with many buildings to see including an impressive pyramid. There is a lot of well preserved carving on the buildings. We also found it quieter than lots of the other sites, particularly Chichen Itza. We hired a guide... More

Uxmal is a must if you visit Yucatan. More impressive than Chichen itza. Advice go there in the early morning the colors in the template and monuments ate just lovely.

This site is around 80 Kms from Merida city and is wonder of the world. It is about maya race and 16 sq kms. Only 8 sites are open to public out of 150. Guide is a must and costs 800 pesos. The museum closes at 5pm. Worth the visit .

The site at Uxmal is extraordinary. It is visually complex and interesting and the landscape is beautiful. Have been many times and plan to return many more.

This site is situated a bit inland and can be reached most comfortable from Merida by some 45 min - 1 hour drive. Archeological site is rather extensive, and somewhat hilly, so I´d recommend to be at the entrance gate at the opening time, 8 AM, and you´ll get a pleasant walk without getting too hot in the midday heat....

We visited the ruins at 8 AM and it was totally worth it, we had a place to ourselves (well, not entirely, but you know) and had time to explore and enjoy the incredible atmosphere! We visited with our almost three year old and took the stroller and left it at one place and then explored (it did not disappear,... More

Uxmal is one of the biggest and certainly one of the most impressive sites in Yucatan. We spent 4 hours there and loved every moment of it. There is very much to see and many views to enjoy. There were many iguanas and they were not very shy. Nice to take photo's of them with the Maya buildings on the... More

This place is unbelievable. No verbal description would be adequate to project the size of the buildings and acreage of what must have been a very large city.
