Uxmal [ʊʃ.ˈmal] beskryf die ruïnes van 'n voormalige groot en kultureel belangrike Maya-stad in Meksiko. Die naam Uxmal is moontlik afgelei van die Mayathanse word "ox-mal", wat drie keer beteken. Die ruïnes is in die effens golwende karstlandskap Puuc (Mayathan: pu'uk) op die skiereiland Yucatan in die gelyknamige Meksikaanse deelstaat, sowat 80 km suid vanaf Mérida geleë.

Die stad het sy goue eeu in die einde van die laat klassieke tydperk in die 9de en vroeë 10de eeu beleef, maar is reeds een of twee eeue later heeltemal verlaat. Die geboue word deur die Adivinopiramide domineer, die soos die meeste ander geboue in Uxmal tydens die kolonisasie van die stad weer en weer herbou en uitgebou is. Die sogenaamde goewerneur se paleis is die mees kragtige enkele gebou en is geleë op 'n hoë platform. Uxmal is een van die mees besoekte Maya-ruïnes en deur restourasie van geboue bied dit 'n goeie insig in die oorspronklike voorkoms van die stad.

Die Voor-Spaanse stad van Uxmal is in 1996 deur UNESCO as wêrelderfenisgebied gelys.

Lleven repelente de mosquitos, agua y bloqueador. Contraten a un guía, vale la pena y por lo menos mi guía estaba realmente enamorado de la cultura maya. En resumen me enamoré de Uxmal.
