Uxmal Mayan Ruins – Carnival Cruise Excursion 2015

Not knowing what to do for our second stop on our 5-Day Carnival Cruise in Progreso (Yucatan) Mexico, we started looking at the different excursions they had to offer. There was Dzibilchaltún Mayan Ruins, Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins, and there was Uxmal Mayan Ruins. Dzibilchaltún looked kind of small, and Chichen Itza had a 2.5 hour bus ride. We did our research and found out that Uxmal had one of the highest ratings and was one of the last big pyramids you can still climb and explore….so we booked it! And boy, are we glad we did! What a memory!

It started with meeting our tour guide in the Mikado show lounge of the ship. Then the group (about 20 of us) walked out to the tour bus. We were given a sack lunch as we boarded the bus (Ham sandwich, bag of chips, banana, and a bottled water (12 oz.)). We then headed for Uxmal as our tour guide explained all about the cities we were driving through, and about the archaeological site of Uxmal.

Once we arrived (1.5 hour drive), we were asked to stay with the group as we had approx. three hours on the site. The guided tour honestly was a little boring as we kept stopping, listening, and not moving, plus it was getting very hot in the humid heat. So…TIP! Peel off quietly from the group, and go explore!

After exploring, we ate another lunch at the one restaurant on site. Make sure to try the pico de gallo (with habanero) with chips! WHOOWAH! Good stuff!

Back on the bus… “siesta time”, as the tour guide stated and the 1.5 bus ride back to the boat.

BRING BUG SPRAY! Tons of mosquitoes! BRING EXTRA WATER! Wear comfortable shoes (tennis shoes work just fine).
