What people are saying about Uxmal

Superb day with our great guide Jorge who speaks Spanish, English and French. The visit to the magnificent site of Uxmal really seduced us in comparison to Chichen Itza (made with another agency) and Jorge's explanations were very rich and well distributed during the visit! The Sotatu de Péon hacienda is very beautiful and far from the tourist crowds that we had encountered previously. We particularly appreciated the demonstration of the process of transforming Sisal into fibre, using the original machines. To end this day in style, we went by small train pulled by horses to the private cenote of the estate and there were only 2 of us in the water! The cenote is entirely underground and by far the one I enjoyed the most during our stay in the Yucatan. We are unanimous in saying that this day is the most beautiful of our 15 days of visit and we highly recommend this excursion with Jorge!

La mejor actividad de Mérida. Visitamos Uxmal, un sitio arqueológico en plena reconstrucción. El guia fue majestuoso y pudo explicarnos a detalles de forma inmersiva la cultura Maya en la zona llamda "Ruta Puuc". La hacienda Sotuta magnífica. Un vestigio de nuestra historia y la comida deliciosa. Lo recomiendo. The best activity from Merida. We visited Uxmal, an archaeological site in full reconstruction. The guide was majestic and was able to explain to us in detail in an immersive way the Mayan culture in the area called "Ruta Puuc". The magnificent Sotuta Hacienda. A vestige of our history and delicious food. I recommend it.

The day starts with a visit to an Hacienda, which is in very good conditions and is a good way to understand more about the history of the Yucatán colonial past. Afterwards we went to Uxmal, which is an amazing archeological site - a must go if in Yucatan / Mérida. Our guide was very knowledgeable and eager to explain every detail of the temples and the Mayan civilization. Then we had a nice traditional food (vegan and vegetarian options included), and finally we drove to the Cenote site which was not as lovely as other ones we saw in the area.

It was a great day with many impressions. The tour guide himself was Maya and was able to explain a lot to us about the culture, history and language. Uxmal is beautiful and should definitely be at the top of your Mexico itinerary.

This tour is just perfect if you want to cover the most important sites around Mérida. Especially less crowded Uzmal was spectecular. Our tour guide Israel had a lot of interesting stories to tell. It was fantastic!
