Trip to Merida Uxmal

How long does it take to drive from Tulum to Merida and then to Uxmal. Can it be done in one day? From Playa is it better to do the Cancun toll road or go from Tulum up to Vallodolid and connect there?

"Can it be done in one day?"

Does "it" mean there, or there and back?

And would you be doing anything while there? It's my understanding that it's about a 3 hour drive from Tulum to Merida.

Not a day trip sorry,, just too far. Stay overnight a few nights, lots of stuff to see such as the Ruta Puuc ruins near Uxmal. We stayed at Hacienda Uxmal, others stay in Merida and drive or take the bus.

Looking it up - looks about 266 miles from Tulum to Merida. That's about 4 hours each way; probably more like 5 when you have to slow down and go through villages.
