Not far from Santa Elena and easily signposted, I arrived here on the back of a motorbike driven by local guy, Orlando (he lives in the 'traditional' houses in Santa Elena and is SUCH a nice man). The site is easy to get around in...More

We stopped here after Uxmal and were glad we did. The stone mosaics were very nice and more detailed. You can climb almost everything here. The site is comprised of three sections, but only the east section (the side where you park) is open to...More

This is definitely worth visiting when you go to Uxmal. It isn't far but it is very different than any of the other sites. For one thing there are almost no people. The site is small and intimate and you can climb any or all...More

Kabah is a nice place. Better than Uxmal but smaller. No guides so you are on your own. Everything is closer so there is less walking.

Every one of the sites we visited in Mexico had so much to offer, and this was no exception. Hardly any tourists at this site so it was easy to get around and get some good pix. Not as many buildings as some of the...More

If you are staying at Uxmal, this place is definitely a should do excursion, its less than 30 minutes or so from Uxmal, and of all the ruins we visited, its the least crowded. It has some ruins you can climb on and is a...More
