It is such a nice serene park. The structures are impressive; it is one of the only sites that let you climb most of the structures. We were there in the heat of August so yes it was hot but there are plenty of trees and grass to just chill out. Plus there is a restaurant and food stands in... More

This place was just amazing. We have visited Chichen itza and Teotihuacan, and these ruins were by far the most beautiful. The great part is that they are not so commercialized like the other two locations. So there aren't too many vendors and paying for admission and going in is quite fast. I highly recommend bringing bug spray and a... More

We visited Uxmal while cruising, port at Progreso, Carnival Legend excursion. The site is absolutely HUGE and AMAZING. Do go visit it instead of Chichen Itza if you want to see impressive ruins without the crowds.

What a nice day we spent here with friends. We took lots of pictures and relaxed. There are many areas where you can relax and sit in the grass. I like to take pictures of birds and I found some very pretty birds including a Hawk that was in the middle of "preparing" his lunch (think it was a rodent... More

As I was located in Akumal, the car drive took me about 4 hours. The drive was definitely worth it. For me, these were my favorite ruins of all that I visited. The place was almost empty, there were only about 20 visitors, and the site is huge. Too bad you cannot climb the Magician's pyramid, as the symbols on... More

Uxmal is a wonderful Mayan ruins park, they have Sound and Light show, well preserved and easy to walk through. In summer gets very hot and humid.

After the madness of Chichinitza, this site was a much more serene and interactive experience, much more green, far fewer tourists, as you can climb up and explore everything but the magician's pyramid - which is also definitely worth seeing! Took about 3 hours for a guided tour.

The buildings are quite beautiful with detailed carvings that have been well reconstructed. The light and sound show is stunning. However it is only in Spanish so have someone tell you the story beforehand. Otherwise you will sit for an hour as lights go on and off without understanding what is happening.

We took a two-day guided tour, which we booked through Thomas More Travel during our stay at the Royal Sands in Cancun. Uxmal is about a six hour drive from Cancun so we decided to stay overnight and visit the nearby city of Mérida, the capital the Yucatan state of Mexico. Uxmal is one of the most significant Mayan archeological... More
