ECOTOURISM COMPLEX
UXMAL

Welcome

The Ecotourism Complex Mun-Ha Uxmal is a rural community tourism project located in the beautiful tropical environment of the Yucatan, 2 km from the town of Muna. Historically, the region is home to the resident Mayan population since before 200 A.D. The ecotourism complex is situated close to the Ruta Pu'uc archeological sites, 16 km from the large, ancient city of Uxmal and 58 km (approximately 36 miles) from the city of Merida. We offer a central point for relaxing, entertainment and discovery on your way to see majestic and mysterious ancient Mayan ruins, underground water pools and caverns, artisan talents, traditional Yucatecan cuisine and many other cultural and natural attractions. It is a safe and wonderful destination for family vacations, honeymoons, retreats and other getaways, with tourist attractions to suit all tastes.

Mun-Ha offers quality services at competitive prices for individuals, families, groups and institutions.



Our Mission

The Ecotourism Complex Mun-Ha Uxmal was initiated and is self-managed by local Mayan farmers, housewives and professionals of the cooperative named "Chac Lol," meaning "Red Flower" in Maya. The Chac Lol cooperative was founded in 1987 in the community of Opichen after 2 years of struggle by the local farmers for their right to cultivate and irrigate the land. Today, five communities participate in the cooperative: Ticul, Muna, Opichen, Calcehtok and Maxcanu. The cooperative is a democratic, independent and autonomous organization.

Mun Ha Uxmal strives to set up a basis for sustainable self-development, which elevates the quality of life for the inhabitants of the communities belonging to the cooperative, while reinforcing the Mayan culture and promoting a harmonious relationship with nature. The project provides employment, training and quality services at reasonable prices.
