  • Uxmal is a wonderful archaeological area on the Puuc route. It is the largest of the route and has been rehabilitated in many of its structures. On your tour you can see the pyramid of the soothsayer, the quadrangle of the nuns, the ball game, the house of the turtles, the palace of the governor, the southern temple and the house of the pigeons. In the evenings there is a light and sound show.
