Wonderful experience without the flea market feel (thus my sublet line). If you want to visit a beautiful site unhurried and with time for reflection and awe this is the place. The buildings are amazing as is the feeling of wonder at the Mayan ability...More

We stopped here during a carnival cruise and stayed about 2 hours. We went on the combination Uxmal/Hacienda Ochil. The extra 30 minutes to an hour here would have allowed us to see more. Overall it was impressive and tiring.

Stunning site, not to be missed. As good or better than Chichen Itza. If possible get to the site early to beat the crowds.

As many other tourists we came to Mexico to see the famous mayan sites. To my mind this is the best to visit. It is much less crowded than Chichen Itza - that's important as you can see the ruins and not the hordes of...More

There are a number of Mayan Sites in Yucatan and this is one of them. The site is quite big and rather open and tends to get very hot. It is a very popular site. Well worth a visit!

I really don't know how you could find anything wrong with Uxmal as a destination. The site is in good condition, well-restored temples you can climb, manageable in a few hour visit without getting too exhausted. You can see some areas that are not yet...More

We are staying at Playa Del Carmen and thinking of driving our rental car to visit Uxmal. Driving time is estimated at 4 hours each way. Looks like route 180 to Merida and then route 261 to Uxmal. How safe are the roads to Uxmal along this route? Is the route well lit for night time driving? Thank you very much.
