Uxmal archaelogical site
Out of all the Mayan ruins worldwide, Uxmal is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Maya culture. Being no less majestic and magical than Chichen Itza, the fact Uxmal is less visited by tourists makes it a much more enticing and awe-inspiring Mayan ruin experience.
Uxmal style is characteristic of the Puuc style, of which Uxmal may be the best representative.
The fine carvings and the elegance of its architecture shows that Uxmal was a political, administrative and trade Centre of major importance. With up to 25000 inhabitants, for about 300 years Uxmal was the most powerful site in western Yucatán, and in alliance with Chichén Itza, dominated all of the northern Maya area.
Even today while the city has been abandoned for centuries, its majesty still radiates. Indeed, Uxmal is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Maya culture.

Haciendas in Mexico were the basis of an economic system begun by the Spaniards in the 16th century, similar to the feudal system of Europe. They were efficient manufacturing centers that produced Sisal (in Yucatan). Over time, haciendas became symbols of wealth and culture, adorned with architecture, furnishings and art from around the world.
choco story museum
What seems like a total tourist trap, located right across from Uxmal, is actually an extremely well-done museum that goes far beyond the story of chocolate. Mayans are credited with the discovery cocoa after all, so the museum does examine its origins here. But Choco-Story ultimately delves deep into the Mayan civilization and culture, which we found to be more in-depth and informative than the onsite museum at neighboring Uxmal, or any of the other ruin sites for that matter.
