Whilst travelling in Mexico I saw Chichen Itza, as well as the Palenque ruins in addition to Uxmal and of the 3, Uxmal was my favourite. Because it's not as touristy as Chichen Itza, as others have said you have the option to explore without...More
This a great ruins site. It has fantastic structures and lacks the crowds that some of the others get. Make sure you bring cash because even though the ticket window advertises that they take Visa "it was not working" which was the same at EVERY...More
I like Uxmal more than Chichen Itza and Palenque. Good restoration work, and the carvings in these late Mayan cities is impressive. Not too touristy, can easily spend 2-3 hours. If you can rent a car, do it. Not worth taking a tour, cause they...More
We visited Uxmal the day after Chichen Itza. Quiet place, not so many tourists which allowed us to go everywhere without problems. You can go up the buildings, make nice photos and appreciate wonderful view. All surrounded by beautiful green area and iguans. I strongly...More
These ruins are much quieter than Chichen Itza or Tikal for example, making for a more relaxed setting to explore the ruins.
You’re able to go onto the ruins, which can’t be done at Chichen Itza and really adds to the experience.

Uxmal ruins are absolutely breathtaking! It's really incredible when you think about how old the ruins are and the fact that it's still intact is amazing. When we went it was super hot but not crowded so we had lots of time to explore and...More
Uxmal is one of the most important ancient Mayan cities along the Puuc Route on the Yucatan Peninsula. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered one of the Mayan cities most representative of the region's dominant architectural style. It is...More
Comparing to Chichen Itza, in my opinion, it is more beautiful and less touristic. Really worth visiting. We stayed at the Hacienda Uxmal, which was great. Partly because it's a great hotel and party because we could go to the tempel at 8 am, so...More
I visited Uxmal on recent days with the family. August is challenging with its 38 Celsius temperatures and 90% humidity. Nevertheless we enjoyed this amazing place carrying water bottles(basic), so we could stand the heat. This is my second visit in 20 years and there...More

Yes, I've driven with friends from Merida to Uxmal. It's quite an enjoyable ride with all the little villages etc along the way. As usual being in any foreign country you need to be aware of your surroundings. I suggest going on google and travel the route you want to take.
Cheers and enjoy, it's one of my favourite sites.

Sorry, no idea about bus. We travelled from Merida by car - about an hour/hour and a half. What about asking your tour operator? As others have said - well worth a visit! Wonderful site, not too many other tourists. Carry on along the Puuc route if you can - Kabah, Labnah, Sayil - fabulous! Beats Chichen Itza hands down. If you have enough time in the area try to visit Dzibilchaltun and Ek Balaam too.
