When visiting the Yucatan peninsula, it is almost a must to visit one of the ancient Maya cities. The impressive set of ruins of Uxmal are found 80 kilometres south from Mérida.
The archealogical site is in good condition and the presence of Chac (the raingod) can be found on most of its structures. The largest structure is the Casa del Adivino (Magician's House), an oval temple. Other sights are Cuadrangulo de las Monjas (Nuns'Quadrangle), Juego de Plota (Ball Court), Palacio del Gobernador (Governor's Palace) and the Gran Piramide (Great Pyramid). The Great Pyramid can be climbed upon to have an amazing view on the Uxmal sight.
