Discover Progreso's past on this scenic excursion to nearby Dzibilchaltun. These Mayan ruins provide a unique look at the area's history, which dates back thousands of years. Take a trip back in time by joining us today on this Progreso tour.

Your exciting Progreso tour takes you to some breathtaking sites. Just 15 minutes from the city of Merida, the Dzibilchaltun Mayan Ruins, where you'll find a number of notable structures including the Temple of the Seven Dolls; the temple gets its name from the seven human clay figures that were found upon its excavation. Depending on the time of year you visit, you can catch an incredible solar event from this vantage point each equinox. While you tour the ruins, you will also have the chance to swim in its famous sinkhole, Cenote Xlacah. It once served as a center for a religious cult but it has turned into a swimming pit for locals and tourists alike.

Light clothing is strongly recommended for this Progreso sightseeing tour. For a fun small group experience in Progreso, book your excursion today.

4 StarsGreat once we found tour guideFebruary 10, 2018

Reviewer: Nathan Moore
NEEDS to be better directions, maybe add a picture of point on map for pickup; 5 star if they had better inst, or local contact held a big sign with info. Lost&waited around for about 30min till I happen to see a young guy holding a clipboard with tour guide name/info. Once we made contact they radio'd the tour van over.The tour guide George spoke good english, friendly & informative. The driver Jose very nice,tour van in good shape with AC too! Only 25 minutes to reach the Mayan site, easy checkin. Site guide very informative, good english. The site was VERY nice, large, & detailed pyramids. The spring fed waterhole was spectacular,, so clear with tropical fish too, alot of people swimming. My 4 year swam too, great after hot walk. Alot of great pictures here. Great lunch in the restaurant for $30. tacos, beer, etc. The van tour took us by the Progreso sign, and enjoy the beach (pics!) a little before they took us back to ship, plenty of time left. Tip all the guides as we did!

This was wonderful! The directions on how to get to our guide was very easy. Our driver was great and the drive to the site was easy. The had a private tour at Dzibilchaltun Mayan Ruins which was amazing and we were given lots of time to watch around on our own. We then were driven back and given a great recommendation for lunch. I highly recommend this tour

5 StarsGreat time, personal attentionNovember 24, 2016

Reviewer: Valerie
Had a really great time seeing these ruins in our small group with personal attention by our tour directors & even once we got to the ruins themselves. Ruins were very cool to see! The only thing we would wish for was maybe just an extra 30-45 minutes at the ruins themselves once the tour portion was over so we could explore more on our own. Definitely recommend.

Reviewer: James Bailey
We had a great time. They took great care of us, arranged for our tickets and private tour guide. The guide was wonderful. She provided information that we would have missed on the self-guided tours. We were very pleased and excited to see the ruins and hear about their significance. After the tour, our driver took us back to the ship which was greatly appreciated. I will recommend you to anyone that is going to Mexico and Progresso.
