Full description
Immerse yourself in the magical illuminations and legends of the Mayans at Uxmal as you enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of the famous Uxmal Lights and Sound show.

Drive southwest of Merida along the Campeche road. Boasting some of the most majestic Mayan ruins in Yucatan, Uxmal was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, and is otherwise known as “Three Times Built.”

Poetic by name and nature, the mysterious complex is situated within a series of hills know as the Puuc, meaning “mountainous area” in Mayan. The name was later given to describe the architectural style of the monuments themselves, including the colossal Magician’s Pyramid, impressive Governor’s Palace, intricate Dove´s Temple, and grand Nunnery Quadrangle.

After touring the sights, relax at the pool and gardens of the Hacienda Uxmal Hotel. Sit down to a delicious dinner at either the Hacienda Uxmal or in the gardens of the Lodge of Uxmal, surrounded by unique Maya palapas. Then, return to the Nunnery Quadrangle and watch Mayan history explained during the Lights and Sound show of spectacular illuminations, projected across the ancient Mayan monuments.

Excellent. Really enjoyed it. Our guides were terrific

Great value would highly recommend it. The ruins were amazing, the chocolate factory tour was terrific. So glad I didn’t pay attention to one review that said it was a waste of time. It definitely was not. The light show was disappointing. It was a story told entirely in Spanish, if you don’t understand Spanish you will get nothing out of the story. The lights were nice but not understanding the story was a big problem for many people who attented the show we went to.

The show is ok.

The light show is ok, the site is my favorite archeological site in the Yucatán. Unfortunately, you need to find a good guide and a good tour company. Our tour, guide and dinner were poorly coordinated and made the experience quite unfulfilling.
