Where to stay in Uxmal – Yucatan – Mexico


Let me start by saying that I haven’t checked out all the hotels I am mentioning, but I thought I would list them here anyway just for the sake of information, in case you are looking for one. My choice is based on the reviews from the previous guests and my taste, if you allow me:).

Just click on the hotel name of your choice to check out availability and rates.

The Lodge at Uxmal

Surrounded by tropical vegetation and gardens, it offers charming rooms with mahogany interiors, ethnic ceramics, and wood carvings. All accommodation comes with a private terrace with a rocking chair and hammock.

The Lodge at Uxmal provides guests with access to the neighboring sister property Hacienda Uxmal, where guests can enjoy 3 outdoor swimming pools, hiking trails, and BBQ facilities. The bar has a terrace with views of the Temple of the Magician.

Hacienda Uxmal Resort and Casino

This historic resort offers 2 outdoor pools and a working plantation filled with fruit trees and jogging trails. The brand new  Uxmal Cacao and Chocolate Museum can also be found on site.

Rooms at Hacienda Uxmal Plantation & Museum feature a blend of traditional Mayan and Spanish décor and have terraces overlooking the pools and tropical gardens. Some also have plantation views. The bar has a terrace with stunning views of the Temple of the Magician.

I love to stay in haciendas for their unique charm and even if this one is not among the most luxurious haciendas in Yucatan, it still has it’s own personality and appeal.

La Casa del Mago

It offers a more affordable stay but still in a beautiful style and architecture. The rooms are simple and yet very nicely decorated with a lot of attention to details. The cute pool in the extensive garden is exactly what you need after a day spent exploring the surroundings.

It is made of lovely cottages in the lush and wild vegetation, just outside town, each of them very nicely decorated in Yucatecan style. This would actually be my choice. Authentic and simple, that connects you with the local culture. It is a few km from all the sites around including Uxmal.

What else can you ask for?  A great place to spend a couple of nights while browsing the region.

There are many more accommodation offers which you can check out here on this link but this would be my choice.


I have written an extensive article on the stunning haciendas so if you wish to stay in those luxury properties, there are a few located at an hour driving from here. And you can check them out here, among them, the closest are Temozón, Santa Rosa and Chable’ the finest one and recently opened.

Close to Uxmal, there is also the Hacienda Ochíl, open only for lunch, but I would really suggest you should pay a visit even if you don’t want to have your meal there. Its’ just a beauty to look at, and a small interesting museum is at the entrance.

Hi there! I am so thrilled you are here!I am Isabella, I own an Italian passport but spent the last 16 years living in many different countries among which Seychelles, Antigua, Jamaica, and Mexico, until I finally realized that settling in one place was not for me. It took a while, I know. 🙂So, I dropped all the heavy stuff and walked away, again, with a suitcase (or two) full of dreams, swimsuits and hiking gear.I am now exploring Mexico before heading to Central and South America, expanding my boundaries and documenting my new life in this blog.
