Check out the museum here, and study artifacts uncovered from the site, from tiny sculptures to metal bells. After exploring the site, consider cooling off in the cenote, where the resident fish will give you a pedicure.

  • Dzibilchaltun ruins offer an interesting tour, the Trek is a bit long, so would recommend to go early to not suffer from the heat of midday. Before leaving to climb most of the ruins and now does not, however some are still open to the public. The only problem that I can mention is that there ARE NO SIGNS. We wanted to go the main ruin to the cenote and cost us work and time find their way.

  • We live just down the road from Dzibilchaltún -- a few centuries ago, our neighborhood was probably part of it! -- so we've visited a few times and really love it. It's broken into two different secti...  read more »
  • This archaeological site, is the very few what there are, which can and has access to many of its buildings. Also of the few zones archaeological that feature with a museum so full. The Cenote is wonderful, to cool down after you have made travel in the area, or just to have a nice and cool time. Without a doubt, have that visit Dzibilchaltun.

  • I have always wanted to visit a Mayan pyramid and climb it. This was great and I learned a lot from our guide. Food is not so great.
  • The Mayan pyramids are a beautiful site to behold. Pictures do not do the scale justice and building structures this massive would be quite a task with modern equipment...
  • The museum is small but somehow interesting. The cenote water is not very inviting and the ruins are so-so. Quite pricy for what it is... Not worth the ride
  • We had a few hours to kill so we decided to come here. It a large site, a lot of ruins to see, and a nice little museum. If you are in the area I would suggest visiting.
  • Cool ruins right outside of beautiful Mérida. You gotra go. Takes 10 minuets to get there from the city and it is usually really quite in the morning. Inside the park you can see more uncovered pieces of the ruined city covered by earth. Make sure to bring bug spray; it's a must.
