Some very beautiful and interesting Mayan ruins. Entertaining sound and light show in the evenings every night. We stayed four nights by Uxmal and visited many of the surrounding ruins and villages. Very interesting.
Uxmal is an excellent site to visit since there are not thousands of tourists roaming around like in other places, which tends to distract from the jungle ambience. It definitely takes a bit more time and effort to visit, but well worth it.
I visited Uxmal while I was staying in Merida and it was a truly amazing experience. Having visited Chichen Itza a few weeks earlier it was good to compare the experiences. Chichen is more famous to British tourists, but although it is well worth a...More
Of the three Mayan ruins that I have visited, Uxmal was the most stunning. Everything was great – visual impressions, lots of details that can be observed. The main pyramid is probably not so impressive as the one in Chichen Itza, but the possibility to...More
We loved this site. It is a less visited place than Chichen-itza and it's really much better.
You can walk around the site very easily and the scenery is great. There's discount for children and Mexicans showing ID.
As echoed in the other reviews, this was a fantastic day out. We drove to Uxmal from Mérida then visited the flamingos in Celestún late afternoon. The Maya ruins were excellent, and whilst not cheap certainly worth the money as there is much restoration work...More
One of my favorite places in México! I enjoyed Chichén Itzá, but I enjoyed this much more. There were more buildings to see, more stories, and drastically fewer tourists and vendors. Our tour guide Jorge Mex Solis, was a perfect guide; the best I have...More
If you come later in the day maybe the crowds would be bad, though since Uxmal is only really in reach of Merida (and not of Cancun), I would imagine still much less bad than Chichen Itza. Either way, if you can stay close by...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... 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 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.
