Uxmal Mexico Vacation

Uxmal is one of the most well known of the Maya cities, and rated by many archaeologists as the finest. The name Uxmal means ‘thrice-built’ in Mayan, referring to the construction of its highest structure, the Pyramid of the Magician. The Maya would often build a new temple over an existing one, and in this case five stages of construction have actually been found. Allow yourself at least half a day for a first visit.
