For those looking for a private Progreso cruise excursion that combines Mayan Ruins with sightseeing, shopping, ruins and more...you tailor the day the way you want. Your federally certified, English-speaking guide will meet you just outside the cruise terminal on the Progreso pier - there is no need to take the shuttle into town! You will climb in the air-conditioned transportation and your day begins for just you and your selected private party.

Dzibilchaltun, pronounced dzeeble-chal-toon, are situated just south of Progreso. There is a big advantage of the close proximity, less travel time, more time at the ruins. Along the short route, your guide will go over the play for the day. They will give you an educational and informative excursion! Have your questions ready and your cameras handy. When you arrive at Dzibilchaltun, you will have the opportunity to see many of the structures and learn more about the Mayan culture.

One of the most famous structures is the Temple of the Seven Dolls named for the seven small dolls found when archaeologists discovered the ruins in the 1950's. One of the unique features of the Temple is the position the Mayans constructed the building. The Temple is situated so that on the day of the Spring Equinox, the sun rises and shines directly through one temple window and out the other.

Cenote de X-Lacah, a large fresh water sinkhole, is also well known and you might be able to dip your toes in if you wish (if the conditions allow)! An unusual oddity is the ruins of a 16th-century Spanish church built within Dzibilchaltun grounds making it a unique combination clash of religions side by side. Located on the grounds are a visitor center with maps, restrooms and gift shop. There is also a renovated museum with many examples of Mayan artifacts that you may view.

Your private transportation will return you to your Progreso pier when your excursion is over.

Juan Was A Terific Tour Guide!
     5/5  January 2020
I would definitely recommend this tour as well as (Juan), who took our group of four to Dzbilchaltun. He was exceptionally well-informed, and quite passionate about Mayan history and culture. He was courteous and considerate, as two of us had some difficulty walking for long periods without resting. If we return to Progresso or Merida, I will certainly book through your agency and would love to have Juan take us to Chichen Itza!

I booked the public version of this cruise through the cruiseline but did not appreciate being rushed and how unpersonalized it was. Our friend recommended Shore Excursioneer and I saw that they too offered this tour for half the cost and smaller groups. After many phone calls and chat assistance, Abby helped me pick the best option for our group, and private was the best way to go! On this cruise I took friends and family to join me and they too were impressed. I definitely felt like we got a better deal this second time around and the service was personalized and our guide Juan made sure to answer all of our questions and did an amazing job looking out for us. Thank you Juan, Abby and the Shore Excursioneer team for making these the best vacations and look forward to continue using you for our next cruise!

so much history to these sites and I personally prefer private guide to make sure we get the most of our visit. our guide Alex is a truly devoted and we truly appreciated his knowledge. He even taught us some Mayan words too! I will be sure to book more private excursions in Progreso since there are many ruins sites I have yet to explore.

Perfect Day
     4/5  May 2014
There was a large group of us who did this excursion and ended up saving a lot of money. The tour was excellent and very interesting. The guides were very helpful and nice and took very good care of us. We were never rushed or hurried for time like we have found with the cruise lines in the past. We got to see the ruins and the rest of the day was shopping and relaxation. Loved it, thank you!
