On this private Mexico daytrip you visit Dzibilchaltún, the oldest Mayan city in Yucatan. Then you continue to Progreso, a small harbor and beach town.
Today, you will be picked up by your private guide to visit Dzibilchaltún which translates as “the place with inscriptions on flat stones” and is the oldest Mayan site in the Yucatán. The most famous construction of the area is the temple of the seven dolls, where seven small clay figurines were found in the 1950s. The windows of the temple were constructed exactly in such a way that during the equinox the sunlight penetrates through them exactly. The site also houses an interesting museum, which exhibits various objects of the Mayan world. Afterwards, continue to Progreso, a port and small beach town close to Mérida and which is a favourite escape of the merideños. The pier, which connects the shore with an artificial island, and is used by oceanliners and cruise ships, is one of the longest in the world. Afterwards, you will be returned to your hotel in Mérida.
