This is definitely worth visiting when you go to Uxmal. It isn't far but it is very different than any of the other sites. For one thing there are almost no people.

I loved this site, and like Uxmal, you feel you have room to breathe here. Admission is M$50 for Kabah. Again you feel you can get up close and personal to the Mayans that lived here. Kabah is a smaller site to get round, and you do need sensible shoes or trainers as the ground is very uneven, there are... More

Just a short drive from Uxmal, the ruins at Kahah are certainly smaller, but they have been wonderfully restored and are fascinating. It's a place where you're free to explore the site on your own, since there isn't much for guided tours. There are also many unrestored structures around it. Great place to get gifts as well.

Kabah is a nice place. Better than Uxmal but smaller. No guides so you are on your own. Everything is closer so there is less walking.

on just how interesting this place is. Easy parking just across the road from the entrance and if you look behind you will see a nature reserve,inside and to the left are what appears to be three temples as yet un explored. I found Kabah pretty easy to get around with my mobility problems,even the stairs are managable with care.... More

Every one of the sites we visited in Mexico had so much to offer, and this was no exception. Hardly any tourists at this site so it was easy to get around and get some good pix. Not as many buildings as some of the other sites we visited but still plenty to see!

If you are staying at Uxmal, this place is definitely a should do excursion, its less than 30 minutes or so from Uxmal, and of all the ruins we visited, its the least crowded. It has some ruins you can climb on and is a ruin in progress, as there are restorations in progress here and on the huge pyramid... More

I have been to the major ruins of the Sacred Valley in Peru, Machu Picchu, ruins in Belize, Guatemala, and of course, Mexico. I had never even heard of Kabah (I thought they were talking about Coba, a different site) and jumped at the chance for our group to go. It is a treasure, people. They have so far restored... More

I visited Kabah after visiting Uxmal on a marathon tour of 5 sites in one day. I rented a car and parked in a dirt lot on the side of the freeway. It was close to the ruins so it felt fairly safe. Across the freeway is the main entrance and it costs 50 pesos. There was a sign that... More

The restored section of this ruin is a precious gem and, although very small, it is really worth it. There are two steep staircases necessary to see the two major buildings, but if you are physically able, do so because the friezes, statues, and carvings need to be seen close up.
