This is a magical, yet uncrowded site that rivals Chichen Itza. When you enter the first thing you see it is the spectacular Temple of the Magician and it takes your breath away. It's just the first of the many marvels that await your discovery...More

Uxmal temples is one of the most epic, magic and exciting places I've been to. We visited in the morning hence it wasn't too crowded with people. It seemed to be the same amount of iguanas as people in the territory and we were able...More

Uxmal had been on our "maybe" list of day trips from Merida, but at the urging of a local in Merida, we went for it and weren't disappointed. It's as many of the other reviews describe, but I wanted to write a review to underscore...More

It was my first trip to Mexico so I was a little nervous. The roads are best for daytime and the locals drive a lil different than US citizens :) We drove from Progresso and the hour and a half felt really long and bumpy... More
