Ticul

One of the larger cities in the Yucatán (with a population of around 20,000), and a busy market town, Ticul is a good base for exploring the Puuc region—if you don't mind rudimentary hotels and a limited choice of simple restaurants. Many descendants of the Xiu Dynasty, which ruled Uxmal until the conquest, still live here. Industries include fabrication of huipiles and shoes, as well as much of the pottery you see around the Yucatán. It also has a handsome 17th-century church.
