Take a private tour, it is worth it! Amazing ruins and a beautiful cenote where you can swim at the end of the tour. My kids loved it and us too!

We can't recommend this site enough! It has everything including a beautiful pyramid complex with an informative museum, and refreshing cenote. We especially appreciated the fact that this site is not crowded like many of the other Mayan sites in Mexico. We were able to...More

This place is absolutely spectacular. I recommend everyone should visit and also swim in the spring pool. Gorgeous! My only complaint is that foreigners are charged so much more than the locals. I feel taken advantage of.

I live between merida and Progreso. The ruins are local and I visit them often, for the spring solstice is my favorite time. The museum is very informative and the little Mayan village is very nice. The cenote has these little fishes who nibbles on...More

Dzibilchaltun Ruins is a great place to see the past of Yucatean history. I went in July, which was very hot with humidity. It was fairly quite considering it is still summer, but most go to Chichen Itza instead. Great place to take the family!...More

What a great day toodling around the grounds and enjoying the ruins. Unlike Chichen Itza, you can still climb these if you so wish. It had just rained so the unusually clear cenote had little visibility but that did not stop us from jumping in....More

Book this excursion with carnival cruise. The price is reasonable. Jorge and Alejandro the best tour guides in Merida. From the cruise port, drive is about 25-30min in a very comfortable bus with cold air conditioning, the seats are very spacious. They provide a bottle...More

Excellent place for a fast visit very close to Merida. One of the best open cenotes to swim. The archeological part is easy to access and the museum offers a nice information package of the mayan heritage and the zone. We spent a nice day...More

Yes, but it isn't much. I think it was about $3 or $4 dl. If you have an INAPAM card (Mexico old age card) it is free. You can self-tour. The museum is well worth seeing. There are great changing rooms if you want to... More

one large back pack was not allowed to come with us. It isn't a far walk. No trouble to carry stuff for a little while!

Backpacks have to be checked but totes don't. At our last visit we transferred towels from the backpacks to the totes and took them in. I'd suggest leaving the cenote til last, wear your swimsuit under your clothes and when... More
