I didn't realize we could have the option of a private driver - any idea how to find one?

That's useful to know, WisRiver. It crossed my mind that it could be a possibility, but I was thinking you could only book at the deep water terminal (access to which is restricted).
We had friends last year who went down to the area by the lighthouse and bought a tour to Chichen Itza. I assume you ca do the same for Uxmal. There only thing that is different this year is the new Autoprogeso terminal, so I do not know where the busses load. Never hurts to check.
What we ended up doing, was walking down the Malecon (on a non-cruise ship day) and finding a tour company located in the Playa Linda hotel. I believe it was called Cris tours and we got transportation with another couple, to Uxmal. Was a fabulous day, and very glad we went. Bit of confusion, as we were of the impression our driver would be our tour guide through the ruins, but turned out that was not the case. The other couple with us was under the same understanding. We did still have option of hiring a tour guide at Uxmal. In any event, it worked out.
Thanks to all those who responded! Appreciate it!
