We hired a personal driver to take us around the city of Merida and one of the places we visited was Dzibilchaltun Ruins. We paid $10 US for entrance into the ruins and was able to roam and at the end swim in the Cenotes. It was beautiful and the water as clear and cool on the hot day.

The ruins themselves are small, nothing much to see. Upon arrival we were offered a guided tour for $25 for a group of 11 people. It was very informative and lasted about 40 min. After that we were free to take pictures or take a swim in the cenote. We enjoyed the cenote so much! It's great for kids and... More

Short drive from Merida. Very easy to visit and explore on you own or with a guide. Bring a swim suite and take a plunge into the cenote--very easy cenote for swimming. Crystal clear water. Easy access. Ruins are interesting and the cite is compact enough to explore in about one hour.

We did not book the tour via the cruise. Do not do this. Much cheaper to go through local tour operator one you get off the ship, I managed to negotiate 5 for the price of 4 and got a great deal. We had time to roam around Progresso prior to the tour leaving from the bus station (if you... More

What a great place to stop by and enjoy a morning with friends and family exploring the area. After going up and down the pyramids you can jump in the local Cenote for a refreshing experience.

We have spent a family day with kids in the park... there are very nice runs, and a great cenote where one can swim. Kids really enjoyed it.

This tour was very interesting. I learned alot about the Mayan history. The ruins were unbelievable! You were able to climb to the top of all the ruins there. This site offer many places to take awesome photos. There is also a gorgeous cenote on location. The little fish in the water will gladly give you a "Mayan Pedicure" if... More

Pay attention not to go on Mondays. They are not going to tell you before purchasing tickets that Museum is closed on Mondays. Regardless you pay same price. Pyramids are very small. Cenote is the best but gets crowded. It's a very small and not too deep on one side. The other side is 46m deep so be very cautions.

Beautiful Mayan ruins located half way between Merida and Progreso beach. There is a cenote where you can swim and cool off after a walk under the sun./Hermosas ruinas mayas localizadas a medio camino entre Mérida y puerto Progreso. Hay un cenote donde puedes nadar para refrescarte después de caminar bajo el sol.
