Dzibilchaltun is so close to Merida and such an amazing site. In the summer months it is very hot, May 19th it was 102 f when we visited. From one end to the Temple of the Seven Dolls it is a good mile walk. Make sure you stop and get water at the gift shop. There is a Cenote in... 更多
A friend recommended that we should go to this archaeological zone, and we took some friends from Australia. We all loved the place, and were quite surprised at the size and amount of buildings found on site. Unfortunately the museum was closed, like every Monday. Good excuse to return. The swim at the cenote was indescribably wonderful. Great thing they... 更多
While there are numerous sites in the Yucatan and most within a few hours from Merida, Dzibilchaltun is a must visit. This is an unrestored site and very original and one of the oldest. Try to go on the equinox and go early to see the sun rise and if it's not raining you can see the sun come through... 更多
This was a nice visit. It was an excursion planned through Carnival. Our tour guides, "Spicy" and "Queeny" were very sweet and so extremely knowledgeable. You could tell the passion they had for teaching you about this place. We are from Texas and the heat does not normally bother us but it WAS hot the day we went. No breeze... 更多
This is a great Maya ruin sight very close to Merida, Yucatan. It has a great small museum with a lot of information. The cenote provides the opportunity for a refreshing swim, and you can even walk on a centuries old Maya 'white road".
Learn all about Mayan calendar and agriculture from Mayan guides who speak fluent English. For a minimal fee you can hire a personal guide at the gate. This is a lovely dig to visit that is not as overcrowded as one of the larger archeological sites and minutes from downtown Mérida.
I guess I am biased as I have seen some impressive ruins in Honduras and Guatemala, but I found the Dzibilchaltun to be underwhelming to see, and poorly organized. We went in, did not receive any guidance or map so we guessed at where to go. Made the mistake of going in the mid afternoon, and while the Merida heat... 更多
It may be hard to pronounce, but this small site is, we were told, one of the most important Mayan sites with one of the longest histories of occupation. There is a first-class museum at the entrance to the site with some wonderful stone pieces, pottery, and grafitti too; also a reconstruction of some Mayan dwellings. We were also surprised... 更多
The Dzibilchaltun ruins are amazing and would recommend if you are travelling in Merida. However, this experience would not have been what it was without the help of a guide. Once you enter the site, guides are generally available for a tour at a very reasonable price. The stories behind the structures are best heard from someone who has first... 更多
First you have to learn how to pronounce it and write it. Once you master this, going there is way much easier. We took a taxi from the main plaza in Merida to these ruins. We agreed with the taxi driver he'd wait 2 hours for us. We finished the whole site in about 1.5. We went there on a... 更多
