Dzibilchaltún is the place
“Where There is Writing on The Stones,” a great Mayan city
that is only nine miles from
Here you will find the Museum of the Maya People, one of the
best and most comprehensive museums in the Yucatán. In
Dzibilchaltún you will find one of the most singular
Archeological sites in
and one of the astronomic wonders of the Mayan culture.
To reach the ruins, walk the winding path past ancient Mayan
stone sculptures. Enjoy the comprehensive and well-designed
air conditioned museum, tracing the steps of the Mayans from
antiquity to the present. Then follow the ecological path
flanked by trees from the region, identified with their
names. This will take you to the Temple of the Seven Dolls.
The principal building is The Temple of the Seven Dolls,
named for the seven small sculptures excavated here and now
residing in a museum in México City. This temple is situated
so that every year, on the 21st of March and September, the
spring and fall equinox, the sun shines directly through the
doorway as it rises. Many other temples on the grounds have
also been rebuilt and restored.
Dzibilchaltún is a great place to wander, enjoy the peaceful
surroundings, climb the structures and imagine what life
must have been like there hundreds of years ago.
Last but not least, head for the
for a refreshing swim. This cenote is open to the public
until 4 PM. It tends to get a little busy on weekends. One
end of the cenote is very shallow, while the other is over
140 feet deep and continues on into a tunnel.
