We visited the Xcambo Ruins as a part of an excursion through Carnival Cruises and it did not disappoint. It cost $5 to enter with our group and we received a brief history from our tour guide. He then allowed us to explore on our...More
Easy short drive out from progreso. A bit tricky to find. Very quiet site, we were the only ones there for about an hour. Can park relatively close to the main ruin (& catholic church built in the middle). Small cenotes. Reasonable entrance fee, pickup...More
Xcambo was not too far from where we spent the night, so we took a slight detour and paid a visit. From here it is an easy drive to Merida with very little traffic. As others have noted, Xcambo is not impressively large, but is...More
After visiting the nearby saltworks at Laguna Rosada it seemed logical to follow the short route the salt would have taken hundreds of years ago to Xcambo (also spelled Xtampu, which is a Mayan variation of the name of the town). This was an industrial,...More
Our visit was through Carnival Cruise. It began in street legal (barely) dune buggies from Progreso out to the site, which added to the fun. Having been to Chichen Itza on another occasion, I was prepared for crowds...which were non-existent. The site is a recent...More
Beautiful place to see some ruins. It was quiet and not terribly crowded. There was some shade to get away from the hot, hot sun (even in December!) Get your pic from the top! Great views from up there. You will need bug spray. On...More

Its not a huge archeological site, but it sure has its own charm....
To enter there you have to do through a dirt road and in the middle of the jungle, you begin to see small pyramids.... until you reach the center of the site....More
Another option is Dzibilchaltun, about 20 minute Uber ride from Progreso. From parking lot to archaeological site is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile. But, there is a gravel road that you might be able to use to get close by car... More
Another option is Dzibilchaltun, about 20 minute Uber ride from Progreso. From parking lot to archaeological site is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile. But, there is a gravel road that you might be able to use to get close by car. You would need someone with Spanish language skills to ask. But even their museum is very nice, 1/4 mile from lot or less. Go early, it will be hot in May.
