Interesting ruins, beautiful area! My favorite was the water hole. So clear and pretty and very refreshing to swim in on a hot day! Only complaints: so hot, tons of Mosquitos, tour guide was hard to hear and understand.

The site doesn't compare to some of the larger Mayan sites close by. It's still worth the walk looking at the ruins and structure of the village....it's interesting as you visit more of the sites how they compare to each other...I still took lots of pictures and enjoyed the sunshine while doing so....

We had a great tour through Grupo Autoprogreso during a stop on a Carnival cruis the last week of May. Ivan and Jerry were ouer guides and were very friendly and knowledgable. The tour bus was comfortable adn air conditioned. We could ealily have spent more time aat the ruins. Swimming in the Cenote was great, coold and refreshing. Driving off the limestone rocks around the edge was also fun.

We made all teh arrangements with Guadalupe at Grupo Autopogreso by email and did not go through any shore excursion packages offereed by Carnival Cruises. The cost was $39/person.

Take the local bus from south of main Plaza and the bus will let you off to walk the short distance to the entrance.Wonderful site, nice walking around with one of the most sophisticated Museums in the Yucatan.

It costs around 100 pesos to visit Dzibilchaltun. They no longer allow you to take bags into the site, so if you are planning on swimming in the cenote (and you MUST do this!!) then my advise is wearing your swim suits under your clothes and carry a towel. You could also carry a bottle of water, essential as it gets very hot here, and your camera. Keep money in your pocket. leave everything else in the car. they have also roped of some of the temples and you can no longer climb and explore them as you used to be able to do.
There is a good shop here and a nice museum which has relics from all across the region. there is also a reconstruction of a few mayan huts. The cenote is lovely for swimming and snorkleling. This is a great place to visit.
