How to Visit the Dzibilchaltun Mayan Ruins [An Alternative to Chichen Itza and Uxmal]

My girlfriend and I lived in Merida for about a month when a friend recommended visiting the Dzibilchaltún (zib-bee-chal-toon) ruins — the closest Mayan ruins to the city.

“It has a cenote you can swim in, so, even if you don’t like the ruins, that’s still fun,” he told us.

He was born and raised in Merida. So, I figured if anyone knew the hidden gems, it’d surely be him.
