Uxmal was breathtaking.
Although Chichen Itza is one of the 7 wonders of the modern world, in my opinion Uxmal is arguably better. Just a short drive from Merida, it is definitely worth the visit. The buildings are incredible and the views stunning. On top of this there are fewer tourists, no-one trying to sell you anything and hundreds of iguanas roamong around! We rented a car whilst in Yucatan to give us more freedom to explore and are so glad we did.
