    South of Merida, Ticul is the largest town. It is 30km east of Uxmal. A useful town - has hotels, restaurants etc... There is a market and it's an ideal place to buy huipal weaving.

    There are several colectivos plying the roads from Merida to Tikul and other towns such as Muna or Sta. Elena. From Sta. Elena, one can catch the tourist Ruta Puuc bus that departs earlier in the day from Merida.

    I had the opportunity of observing an interesting festival in the Plaza, across from the Cathedral. It occurred on Thursday, June 14 and I’m not sure if it's a re-occurring event. It was a religious festival of sorts.

Ticul Off The Beaten Path

    Ticul serves as an excellent place to spend a few days exploring the Ruta Puuc sites. I went ahead and placed all of my Ruta Puuc consolidated tips in my Merida page since I figure people will be more inclined to visit that page rather then this page. Please check out my Off-the-beaten path tips in my Merida page.

    I had the pleasure of visiting the incredible ruins of Uxmal. This site has to be among the best in the Mayan world. Its amazing the detail work the Mayan put into building the Palace, even more so when one considers the lack of metal tools in the Mayan world back then. For those without a car, there is a Tourist Red bus that takes tourist from Merida to the many Ruta Puuc sights, including Uxmal, Sayil, and Kabah. You can catch this bus at the small town of Sta. Elena as well. Check out my Uxmal page.
