We visited the Uxmal Ruins on a private tour we arranged on our own as a shore excursion from the port of Progreso. The drive from the port to Uxmal is about 1.5 hours. We had previously visited the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum,...More

Ruins are very nice and interesting. It is very different to Chichen Itza and not as crowded. We liked the site a lot.

The most mystique mayan temple i'd ever visited. Very well preserved, lots of history, you can still climb some of the pyramids there. In the middle of the jungle surrounded by evergreen trees. And if you stay overnight ,you'll enjoy the amazing light show.

We booked a private taxi company to take us to the Uxmal Mayan ruins vs using the cruise ship excursion bus. The trip from Progreso is about 90 minutes each way. It is well worth the trip and our guide was excellent too. Uxmal has...More

We entered at 9.30 AM with still very few people around; the tour lasts 1.30-2 hrs and is worth its price. Also I strongly suggest to find a guide to enjoy the experience at its fullest.

These were the fourth and last ruins that we visited on a four day tour with Thomas Cook. We were not expecting anything different as we had seen so much but Wow, this is a very special place. The scale of the site, the sheer...More

As well restored as Chichen Itza but far less tourists and no local merchants to bother you in selling souvenirs like in Chichen Itza ! Uxmal is surrounded by nature and you can have exclusive experience if you arrive at opening time...

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
