There isn't a museum equal that contains both Maya and Spanish artifacts including a Maya replication of their sacred chac chac (rain) ceremony. The cenote is lovely too.
A short half hour ride from Merida on your way to Progresso you will find the ruins of Dzibilchaltun including the house of the seven dolls, a very interesting museum describing the findings of the site and an open cenote with clean water where the local teenagers and family and tourists may take a swim to get off the sweat...

Loved seeing the ruins and hearing the history and stories. We used Auto Progreso and were very pleased with the prices, bus, and tour guide Ivan and driver Antonio. It was quiet and peaceful there. The ruins are accessible and some you can climb on and explore. I recommend this tour.
Was so very pleased to take the tour of this site! Our tour was purchased through the cruise line and priced reasonably well. Time to get to the ruins was not bad and got to explore a lot on our own once the guides spoke about the history etc. There's a really nice natural spring pool there to swim in... More
Ivan was our tour guide. We visited ruins and City of Merida. He was very informative. Will take tour again when we return with kids. JQ

This place is very near to Mèrida,about 30min. Is very small but beautiful. There is a cenote where you can swim wich is very convenient after a walk around the place you need to refresh. I recomend to bring swimsuit, sunblock and one or two bottles of water, is very hot!
We rented a van and driver for the day and visited the ruins and cenote at Dzibilchaltun as well as a short trip to Progresso. Our driver had a masters degree in Mexican history and turned out to be an excellent and informative guide at the ruins. The experience was incredible. Highly recommended!
My husband and I LOVE Merida and the surrounding area. Dzibilchaltun is a cool historic place to visit. The museum there is very informative and well done. Don't miss it!!! The Temple Of The 7 Dolls is worth the visit alone. Take your time and absorb the history that is all around you.
