Santa Elena Attractions: What to do in Santa Elena
"This was a truly awe inspiring experience. There are far less crowds then at Chichen Itza but just as impressive. I found myself walking around constantly asking "how did they do that". Must see amazing ruin."
"This was a shore excursion for our family from a Carnival cruise ship.
I picked this based on reviews and pictures.
After going there it was worth the long bus ride.
I will warn you to bring extra batteries for your camera. My wife ran the battery down on her camera with all the photo ops."
"We included Uxmal as the last stop on our modified Ruta Puuc tour from Merida. We chose to view the site without a guide, which worked perfectly for us. The major areas were nicely signed in both English and Spanish and easy to explore. The site is small enough to enjoy without being overwhelmed,..." yet contains some very impressive structures. I call our tour modified because we hired a driver from Santa Ana Taxi in Merida for the day, which allowed us to see far more (and on our own schedule) than we would have from a packaged tour. Definitely more of this type of travel in the future.
