We took a tour from Merida with Mayan Hertitage, arranged by Nomadas Hostel. The site was fantastic. The ruins have so much detail and and are so pretty. We spent about 2.5 hours here. Our guide did a great job showing us every detail was about the snakes and rain god. Absolutely fantastic ruin - do not miss it. We... More

This is not as large as Chitin Itza - but also much less touristy. We went as a day trip from Merida - but you can also stay at a lodge near the ruins. The bus from Merida was fine and easy to find a guide in the ruins. Go early in the day if possible for best shade and... More

You should allow 3-4 hours at a brisk pace to see this place. It's impressive to say the least and you can still go to the top of one on for tallest structures for a stunning view over the treetops. This ruin has yet to be descended on by the droves of tours and vendors that "adorn" the nearby Chitzen... More

This historical sight was amazing! I went with my family in January. There is so much to see. It is also really neat that you can hike on most of the temples. It is a great place for history lovers or thrill seekers!

Lots to see. Amazing. Fantastic for history buffs and thrill seekers alike. Steps to climb ruins are often steep, uneven and short for a big foot. There are no handrails or any kind of safety equipment available. So very scary with children. My husband talked me in to letting our children climb to the top (ages 7 and 14). Although... More

Most of our group passed on this excursion due to the 1 1/2 hour bus ride from Progreso, but did they miss out on an outstanding venture. The ruins are like stepping inside a large Mayan city hundreds of years ago. Two large pyramids, governors palace, town square, ball court, housing and other buildings make up an amazing place. Even... More

We decided to go here instead of Chichen Itza after the crowds of Tulum pretty much ruined that place for me. We arrived at 8 and had the place all to ourseves for an hour or so before anyone else arrived. We booked a guide in the parking lot of the hacienda. He seemed knowledgeable, but was more interested in... More

After reading tons of blogs and reviews of Uxmal versus Chichen Itza, my wife and I decided to go to Uxmal, and we were not disappointed. One of the biggest draws for us was that many of the ruins are Chichen Itza are blocked off and you are unable to climb them. At Uxmal however, only the main pyramid (Pyramid... More

After visiting Coba, Tulum and Chichen Itza we almost didn't visit Akumal, thankfully we got bored in Merida and headed there! We got the second class SUR bus from the TAMA, goes to Campeche but stops at Akumal (takes about an hour and 15 and costs 59 pesos each way) It's such a great site! It's very beautiful and peaceful... More
