Description

300 pesos for camping in the grassy parking lot of Uxmal. Pretty pricey! We saw the ruins and then went next door to the lodge at Uxmal for a cold beer and a dip in their pool. They have wifi at the lodge but it is pretty crappy.

A beautiful hotel with a well-kept pool. You can camp on the meadow. The pool, the well-tended showers and toilets can be used. Price 600 pesos. You can register at the hotel bar. 50m further is the parking lot of the pyramids. Spending the night in the parking lot costs 300 pesos.

It is nie 300 peso per night on field grassy field outside the parking lot. It is too expensive but there is no other option, asked at all hotels and the chocolate museum but everyone said we should park at the ruins. Also the entrance with 413 peso per person way too expensive compared to ruins in Chiapas, Quintana Roo and Campeche. But we are here and took a look.

Still 131 MXN/night, very friendly. We asked the man at the parking lot entrance, if we can get water for our RV. He showed us the hose and we could fill up. Wifi from different sources.
A very short walk to the ruins.

They don't accept motorbikes. Camping is not allowed - just inside cars. Took me like 2 hours to find an alternative spot. Really annoying since I saw at least 4 big Campervans that had their "sideroof" open. Just don't see the point why my little tent should be a problem... :-(

Price for camping still 131 Pesos.
Pool is now 100 Pesos/ Person.

When business takes precedence over history ...
234 pesos per person (70 pesos at the first counter and 164 pesos at the second counter next).
131 pesos the night of camping, 0 service apart from the free wifi, vast grass field partly in the shade.
By far the most expensive pyramids we have visited so far. Welcome to Yucatan!
The site can be visited in less than an hour. There is nothing authentic, everything is redone, cemented, concreted, it completely distorts the place. Of all the cities we visited in Mexico, it is the only place massacred by a hazardous restoration. The Mayans would turn in their graves to see that!
The bar / restaurant is overpriced considering the mediocre products.
We do not recommend this visit at all, there is so much more beautiful and less expensive elsewhere in Mexico ...
We are very disappointed for the first time since 10 months of travel. At the limit, spend the night there to take a break;)

Quand le business prend le pas sur l’histoire...
234 pesos l’entrée par personne (70 pesos à un premier guichet puis 164 pesos au second guichet a coté).
131 pesos la nuit de camping, 0 service à part le wifi gratuit, vaste terrain d’herbe en partie à l’ombre.
De loin les pyramides les plus chères que nous ayons visité jusqu’à lors. Bienvenue au Yucatan !
Le site se visite en moins d’une heure. Il n’y a rien d’authentique, tout est refait, cimenté, bétonné, ça dénature complètement l’endroit. De toutes les cités que nous avons visité au Mexique, c’est le seul endroit massacré par une restauration hasardeuse. Les Mayas se retourneraient dans leurs tombeaux de voir ça !
Le bar/restaurant est hors de prix au vu de la médiocrité des produits.
Nous ne conseillons pas du tout cette visite, il y a tellement plus beau et moins onéreux ailleurs au Mexique...
Nous sommes très déçu pour la première fois depuis 10 mois de voyage. A la limite, passez y la nuit histoire de faire une pause ;)

Perfect place to visit the ruins. same price. And after your night, in the morning you are the first and alone in the pyramid !

best camping option close to ruins. we paid 131 and put up our tent with 4 people. beers from kiosk in lobby slightly less expensive than restaurant, 49 at kiosk v 77 at restaurant, and you can take away to campsite. make sure you have what you need for food and water as options once here are limited and expensive.

The most expensive ruins so far. 30 pesos parking and 218 pesos per person to enter. The restaurant is ridiculously expensive. Main course at 450 to 800 pesos per plate ... soup starting at 160 pesos. Ruins are great .. too bad about the prices in the area.

pay at the the pay booth at the entrance to the Uxmal ruins parking lot. The camping area is the grassy chained off area opposite the restaurant, just before you get to the parking lot. Open wifi from the restaurant, plus access to the restaurant/ lodge swimming pool for $50 per person.

131 pesos, quiet night, no problems. Night show was nothing special, would rather sleep early and beat the crowds for the real thing in the daytime.

WARNING: when I was there the guy told me they do not let tent camping, only car camping allowed.

We too paid 131p to park overnight. great Wi-Fi from Lodge. Very good telcel too. checked out chocolate museum but it's pricy: 120p ea so we passed. Night time light show was 89p ea. great way to see main buildings without high daytime price. sound track all in Spanish and there appeared to be no place to get headsets; no one had them. we had a quiet night.

131 MX and like the other reviews, it was fine for an overnight before an early start at the ruins. Quiet.

Report Check-In

Good place to stay if you want to be early at the ruins and have them all to yourself; and to see the light/sound show in the evening. Also in easy walk of the Chocolate Museum - do not forget to go and see that. Camp fee is $131 per night which includes use of toilets in the park, but you need to walk 500m or so. No WiFi and no power or other facilities. Had to pay $50 per person extra for dip in swimming pool. Restaurant across the road excellent but expensive.

location.location.location. Paid $131 pesos to camp in the lot next to the main parking lot, no amenities. If you park directly across from the lodge restaurant, you can pick up their open wifi signal, it's decent. Food & drink are expensive, so bring what you need or you'll be tempted to spend $45 pesos on a beer.

grassy parking without amenities (132 pesos). Wifi from the next hotel. Very quiet and you are able to enter into the site at 8.00 am before the crowd!

Camped in the employee parking lot at the ruins PROS: close to the ruins, super clean bathrooms available in the lobby, pirated wifi from the hotel across the street CONS: large grassy lot so very buggy 131 pesos/night

Parking without shade and without facilities. Free WIFI. Good starting point to watch the nightly light show. When buying a drink in the hotel bar, you may use the swimming pool and restrooms.
