Anyone who has visited a Mayan pyramid in the summer knows how miserably hot it can be when you finally arrive at the site. Solution: drive leisurely to the Hacienda Uxmal at your own convenience. Arrive and check in. Go to the ticket area a "block" away, and get your Sound and Light tickets for that night, shop the artisanal shops, go back to the hacienda and have a swim in the colonaded pool. Arrive at the pyramid entrance at 7:30 and pick up a translating head set, see the show, and have dinner at the grand palapa across the street. The food is very good at the palapa. The next morning you can rise early and see the ruins at 8 a.m. when it is cool and shady, then swim and relax till check-out time. The hacienda is inexpensive and beautiful, as haciendas usually are, with large rooms and high ceilings, and is only an hour's drive from Merida. The employees treat you like royalty. After all, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip once stayed there.
