We went here one afternoon, mainly to swim in the cenote. If you are interested in ruins, then you would probably enjoy this, but if are going to Uxmal or Chichen Itza on your trip then I would skip the ruins here. The cenote is open to the air, and the water was pretty dirty. There are also lily pads... More

Have been here twice, both times were too short. Plan on up to 4 hours to see the site and the museum. Get an interpreter. if you want, bring a swim suit and take a dip in the open senote on site. This place represents an interesting juxtaposition between Mayan culture and Spanish invasion. The Museum is a must see... More

The tour generally takes about 3 hours or longer depending on your pace. This was my 2nd time on this tour and I still love it, even the 2nd time around. The tour guides were friendly and courteous. There's a great restaurant located on site with tasteful entrees to choose from. There's also a museum located on site and it's... More

We went here to swim at the cenote. We didn't quite understand where to go (it's literally in the middle of the ruins) so we ended up wandering around a bit. Nice ruins, quite pretty and small (in a nice, compact "doable" way). Children under 12 were free, adults were $130 pesos each. Parking was $20 pesos. We were required... More

The Mayan ruins are fantastic. The area is not as large as Chichen Itza or Uxmal but it is just as interesting. It's within a taxi ride of Merida and well worth the trip.

When our ship docked at Progreso, we bought a combo tour from Autoprogreso that took us to Dzibilchaltun Mayan ruins, and the old colonial city of Merida. It was much cheaper than buying a tour from the ship. Our guide, Ivan, was very knowledgeable and made sure to get us back to our ship in good time. We chose the... More

We have enjoyed bringing friends and family to visit this lovely site for many years. The museum is wonderful, and we especially love the beautiful cenote, with many tiny fishes. A visit to the Temple of the Seven Dolls is well worth the walk. On the Spring Equinox the rising sun comes through the door and windows of this temple,... More

these are just 4 rocks on top of each other - compared to the rest of Yucatan, it has really nothing to offer. Its way out of Merida, like 80 km. I got lost on the way there and they also robbed me on the way back! really regretted the visit......
