Located a 5-minute drive from Santa Elena town, Eco-Hotel Nueva Altia offers lush tropical gardens, an outdoor pool and palapa dining room. Room big, bright and clean a 20 minute ride from Uxmal. Lost in the forest. It was great to sleep with the forest sounds. The staff is very nice and runs everything so smoothly.
Set a 2-minute walk from the traditional village of Santa Elena, The Pickled Onion Eco-Boutique B&B features charming thatched bungalows, an outdoor pool and a restaurant. Excellent approach of Valerie, she helped us a lot with the accommodation! The breakfast included a variety of fruits and everything was fresh and delicious
Offering an outdoor pool plus an à-la-carte restaurant, Hotel Puuc is located in Oxkutzcab, a small town 1 hour and 30 minutes’ drive from Mérida, Yucatán. Free Wi-Fi access is available. It is a nice place to overnight while in the area. It is clean and comfortable.
Offering an outdoor swimming pool, garden and an on-site cenote, Capital O Hotel Hacienda Yunku is located 984 feet from Abalá town center. Free Wi-Fi access is available in public areas. Employees were very very nice and helpful, the hacienda is peaceful, and has its own fantastic cenote!
The Lodge at Uxmal is located within Uxmal Archaeological Park, just a few steps from the pyramids and temples. This is an exceptional hotel. The location is perfect for visiting Uxmal (1 minute away) and the staff could not have been more attentive. Large swimming pool. Highly recommended.
What I liked about Ticul (other than its central location in the Puuk region) is how little emphasis it seems to put on tourism. That has its downsides--few really good restaurants, for instance, but we felt that we were in a real place, absorbed in its own life. As in many old Mexican towns, the sidewalks, except in the center, are mostly very narrow and sometimes precarious, and there is a lot of traffic--mostly motorized and unmotorized triciclos, bicycles, and motorcycles, so going for a walk is not always easy. I would not describe the town as picturesque, but there is a lot of life there, and very friendly people. Because I was traveling with a picky eater, we didn't take advantage of the many little loncherias, but we enjoyed meals at La Carmelita and La Gondola, and excellent coffee and good snacks at Tick's, all near the centro. The hours of some other restaurants (such as the apparently very pleasant one in the Hotel Plaza) were so restrictive that we never managed to eat there. At Arte Maya, half-dozen or so blocks from the centro (blocks in Ticul are pretty long), you can find a wealth of museum-quality reproductions of ancient Maya sculpture, along with the usual decorative pottery--definitely a place worth visiting.
Ticul is a shoe maker town. Great market with fresh food and goods. Great prices. Motorcycle taxi only 10 pesos for short ride. Transportation to Merida only 42 pesos. Other towns and ruins are easy to explore. The mayan people are friendly. Wonderful experience.
Ticul is off the beaten track. The place itself isn´t very special apart from being just a normal non touristy town. But it is an excellent base to explore the sights on Ruta Puuc and the Cenotes around it.
