The ruins were fascinating and don't take a full day but provide plenty of variety. Night time light show is great but narration is in Spanish so if you don't speak Spanish it's hard to get the full impact.

Uxmal wasn’t even on our list but it turned out we favoured it over Chichen Itzá. Very beautiful site, we got there like 11am and it wasn’t even busy. The site is in great condition, has stunning views, and it can be climbed! The visit...More

Beautiful ruins and history. Take a cap, sunglasses and water as you explore the ruins. It will take a couple of hours to discover this place and take pictures. Hike up one of the ruins in there, if you are brave to climb down. No...More

One of the highlights of our trip. Not crowded even at the peak hours, well kept, knowledgable tour guides (Manuel was excellent) and variety of buildings to explore. Unlike Chichen Itza, you are not inundated with annoying and pushing vendors INSIDE the site. I wish...More

It was about a 2 hour bus ride from the Port of Progresso. It was well worth the ride. The grounds were pristine and our guide gave a very informative Tour. We learned alot about the history and also the mystery why the Myans vanished....More

The ruins are simply amazing. They open at eight in the morning, and I encourage you to go early. Seeing the pyramids rise up in front of you while the air is cool and the place has few people is unforgettable. The site itself is...More

Lovely place. Easy to walk around. Since it's not crowded you realy can enjoy it. The buildings are in a good condition and you are allowed to walk on some of them. The entrance fee is far cheaper than Chichen Itza but i don't recal...More

It's not that big as Chichen Itza but I think it's funnier because you're able to climb up the archeological ruins and also it's less visited and commercial. Of course there's a lot of sun so don't forget about your skin care and a guide...More

Of all the Mayan ruins that I have visited across Mexico, this one stands out for one specific reason: The Quadrangle of the Nuns. This gigantic courtyard is filled with some of the most detailed Mayan epigraphy that I have seen amongst all the ruins...More

It is a lot of walking. If she has crutches (or a wheelchair), impossible. There are no sidwalks once you get into the ruins, and between the individual areas. If she can stand the pain, then she is fine, but the various... More
