Welcome to Ticul
Ticul, 30km east of archaeological site Uxmal, is the largest town in this ruin-rich region. It’s dusty and fairly quiet, but has hotels, restaurants and transportation, so it's a good base for day trips to nearby ruins. (It's not as attractive a jumping-off point as nearby Santa Elena, though.) Ticul is also a center for fine huipil weaving, and ceramics made here from the local red clay are renowned throughout the Yucatán.
Ticul’s main street is Calle 23, sometimes called ‘Calle Principal,’ starting from the highway and going past the mercado (market) to the main plaza, Plaza Mayor.
