We had a great time "roadtriping" through the whole ruta puuc. Each site has a fee, being Uxmal the most expensive of all. Both of my young boys enjoyed exploring each site, lots of history in this places. Perfect for taking awesome photos or video...More

We had a tour with our family of 5 with a guide. Very good explanation of architecture of the Maya and their culture. The site at Uxmal is beautiful.

Arrive early ( it opens at 8.00am) as the days are hot in June/July. You can virtually have the place to yourself and take your time exploring and climbing the ruins. I suggest getting a guide as you learn a lot more. Be prepared to...More

Way better than Chichen Itza even though its one of the seven wonders of the world. You make the trip to Chichen and you only get to see it and walk on the paths. Here you travel to the Ruta Puuc, visit this and you...More

Amazing ruins, really worth seeing. You'll need to drive there, it was fairly easy to find but we did use the Waze app for directions. We wandered without a guide....maybe 2 hours all told. We arrived at 9 am and almost no one was there!...More

We stopped here during a carnival cruise and stayed about 2 hours. We went on the combination Uxmal/Hacienda Ochil. The extra 30 minutes to an hour here would have allowed us to see more. Overall it was impressive and tiring.

I booked the Uxmal and Kabah tour with Mayaland Tours. The tour guide picked me up from the hotel right on time. There were only 3 people in the tour and it was a lot of fun. At Uxmal the highlight was the Pyramid of...More

Stunning site, not to be missed. As good or better than Chichen Itza. If possible get to the site early to beat the crowds.

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
