Took 2 hour guided tour then returned for light show. Also offered full day tour but 2 hrs was enough for us. Guide provided in English and Spanish. Despite being winter it was very hot. Tour came w good dinner at place just outside the site. Light show wasn't quite what we expected. Bit repetitive. All in Spanish which thankfully... More

So beautiful place. I still cant belive the Mayas were able to build so detailed buildings. The place is filled with history and many many undiscovered grounds. Very Intresting place to visit.

Place was easy to find and very touristy. The sign with prices stated that children 12 and under enter free however, the cashier said only for Mexican residents although the sign doesn't specify.

Fabulous experience. We visited Uxmal first thing in the morning. There was a sense of peace and calm amongst the ruins with lots of lizards around keeping an eye on us! We spent about 3 hours wandering around, looking at the amazing ruins. If you have a choice between Chichen Itza and Uxmal, go to Uxmal. By midday, there were... More

This is our first trip to the Yucatán, and we spent the day at Uxmal. A wonderful experience. Our family have been to Chichen Itza, and preferred the ruins at Uxmal.

We went to several other ruins, including Chichen Itza, and Uxmal is hands down THE BEST! In such amazing condition, the carving are gorgeous, and you can still climb one of the pyramids!

These ruins are definitely worth visiting if you're spending time in Mérida or Campeche. Many people ask if it's better to see Uxmal or Chichen Itza. They're different in themselves. We personally enjoyed Uxmal more, as it was more interactive and we were able to climb the main pyramid, while being able to walk around and inside mostly all of... More

It's a beautiful place to wander in, definitely needing a guide to explain. It is somehow spiritual not unlike Matchu Picchu. It is not nearly as crowded or hot as Chitchin Itza either

This is a large, well excavated and cared for site of ruins. Definitely worth getting a guide for historical and architectural details. Best done in morning as there is alot of walking and to escape the heat of the day. Very interesting and extensive site that is well preserved. One of the best in MX!
