“Pyramids and a Cenote close to Merida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

If you're in Merida, take a couple a couple of hours and enjoy the Mayan ruins at Dzibilchaltun. Located about 20 kms north of Merida on the highway between Medida and Progreso, this anthropological site contains some small but defined Mayan ruins, some Spanish colonial ruins and a Cenote all in one very accessible location. Take your car, a tour bus, or a taxi from Merida; there are plenty on English speaking guides to ease your visit. Don't miss the small well organized museum on the site. The displays all have Spanish and English translations and help understand the scope of the geographic incursions of the Mayan civilization on the areas of Central America and Mexico.

“Closed for Renovations”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

It was closed for renovations but we only found out after we had walked out to it. Some interesting buildings to see on the way though but didn't really justify the walk.

“Closed for renovation as of 10/12”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Don't know what's going on with this building, but a sign at the entrance gate told us it was closed for renovation. Check status before you visit.
