Buried deep in the heart of the tropical rainforest are the Pre-Columbian ruins of Uxmal. Although a well established tourism destination, they are noticeably quieter than those at Chichén Itzá, and only two hours away from their world famous counterparts. The site is recognised for demonstrating what was perhaps the pinnacle of Mayan architecture and design, with intricate carvings and mosaics adorning the ruins. It also clearly shows the strong connections the Mayan people had with astronomy and their expertise in the area. The most identifiable structure in Uxmal is that of the 6th century Pyramid of the Magician. We stay nearby to offer you access to the park at quieter times of the day and away from the heat of the midday sun.
