Very small if you compare with Calakmul or Palenque, for example. Entrance fee is 75 pesos and I think is expensive for whath it is. Not crowded when I visited

We visited the Xcambo Ruins as a part of an excursion through Carnival Cruises and it did not disappoint. It cost $5 to enter with our group and we received a brief history from our tour guide. He then allowed us to explore on our...More

Easy short drive out from progreso. A bit tricky to find. Very quiet site, we were the only ones there for about an hour. Can park relatively close to the main ruin (& catholic church built in the middle). Small cenotes. Reasonable entrance fee, pickup...More

Xcambo was not too far from where we spent the night, so we took a slight detour and paid a visit. From here it is an easy drive to Merida with very little traffic. As others have noted, Xcambo is not impressively large, but is...More

Our visit was through Carnival Cruise. It began in street legal (barely) dune buggies from Progreso out to the site, which added to the fun. Having been to Chichen Itza on another occasion, I was prepared for crowds...which were non-existent. The site is a recent...More

These were in good shape. You have the ability to climb up the stairs in a few spots. Excellent for pictures. Don’t forget the bug spray 😊

It’s a beautiful & quiet place, the Maya ruins are amazing! We paid about $7.00 USD to enter with our car right at the front of the pyramids. You will see many wild life, we saw many iguanas. Please wear pants and mosquito repellent,

Another option is Dzibilchaltun, about 20 minute Uber ride from Progreso. From parking lot to archaeological site is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile. But, there is a gravel road that you might be able to use to get close by car... More
