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.

I had read the reviews and knew there was a bit of chaos finding our guide for the excursion which was the case for us as well. It was a bit disorganized getting in the van, but once on our way the information that was shared on the way was very insightful. I'm not much on history, but must say we thoroughly enjoyed our tour & especially our guide Julio. I would not have enjoyed the tour had we not had a great guide like him with all of the added information. Being able to cool off in the Cenote at the end was a perfect way to finish up prior to heading back to the ship. The water was very refreshing and absolutely beautiful! Wonderful experience. I would recommend it!

Very informative and friendly. They took care of us from the meeting place in town to dropping us at the port.

This turned out to be a great excursion and a private one Meeting our guide was quick and easy she was waiting for us just outside the terminal .Turned out you were the only two people in her tour so it ended up being a private tour. Upon arrival at the ruins we were met and turned over to another guide who again was our private guide. We quickly noted that the busloads of 42 people from the ship that we were travelling had one guide as well for 42 of them . Our guide made tour enjoyable and was extremely knowledgable I would certainly recommend this tour

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
