When my Merida innkeeper described going to Uxmal as a mystical experience, I thought it was the tequila talking. I was wrong. It was!

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

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

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. If you’re really...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

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... More

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... More
