We chose to take Dzibilchaltun Ruins shore excursion with Carnival at port Progresso. Our children are 11 and 8, so we decided to visit this ruin based on 45 minutes bus trip and it allows us to climb. The total time was about four hours...More

Great little ruin site with an amazing cenote, bring your suit! A small site, perfect for those who don't want too much walking.

Loved the ruins. Not to big and easy to walk. The cenote is nice and cool. The water is very clear and the fish nibble on your feet for a free pedicure.

The museum was amazing. The Cenote was great. People were swimming there and next time I will bring a bathing suit. The history and stone monuments are really worth the time to explore. I will go back there again. It’s not far from Merida.

We took a tour with Carnival cruise excursion. Our tour guide was Kumen aka Spicey. He was a fun guide who was very knowledgeable. The food at the restaurant upstairs was fresh and tasty but a little pricey. Overall I would do it again.

One gets the impression that - once upon a time - the ruins were better cared for than they are currently. From what our (Uber) guide told us, they have expanded the site through further excavation over the years. This expansion has not been accompanied...More

This archeological site is easy to get to from the city. It is fun to swim in the cenote; interesting to see a church in the centre of the main square; and to see an observatory and secabe (sacred road) so close proximity to the...More

It was a very hot day, but we still climbed up the pyramids, dipped in the cenote, truly enjoyed the ruins.

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
