Uxmal archeological site is not the only amazing attraction in the area and you might want to stay around for a couple of days and check out all the other interesting sites, such as the Ruta Puuc and the Chocolate factory beside a few interesting cenotes. In this post, I will help you find the best hotels that I want to suggest after doing some research.


The Lodge at Uxmal 

It cannot get any better. If you want to treat yourself this is the place for you. Right by the entrance of the archaeological site, this beautiful property has an amazing atmosphere, both by day and night with all the suggestive lights in the huge pool.

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

The sister property of the lodge, right across the street from the Uxmal site. 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

This cute little property is located at walking distance from the site just up the main road. 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 detail. The cute pool in the extensive garden is exactly what you need after a day spent exploring the surroundings.

The Flycatcher Inn

This cute little property is located in the heart of the “Ruta Puuc” in the town of Santa Elena. 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.

The Pickled Onion

Another lovely authentic local style in this small interesting property located a 2-minute walk from the traditional village of Santa Elena, Nicely decorated bungalows, an outdoor pool, and a restaurant with Yucatecan cuisine. 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 booking.com but the above hotels are my favorites

HACIENDAS

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.

The picture in the header is a kind courtesy of the extraordinary hacienda hotel  Chable Resort and Spa. To know more about Chable’ Resort and Spa, you can check out my post on the beautiful Yucatan haciendas.
