Dzibilchaltun Ruins Tours

Dzibilchaltun Ruins
Near the ancient town of Merida, you’ll find the massive but beautifully ruinous structure known as the Dzibilchaltun Ruins. Though somewhat of a tongue twister for traditional English speakers, the name means “place where there is writing on the stones,” but unfortunately, due to erosion, you’ll no longer find much writing on the stones here. Instead, the intrepid explorer is rewarded with over 8,400 architectural structures to discover, many of which have astronomical (as well as religious) significance. Explore the stunning interior of the Temple of the Seven Dolls, listen to stories of absolute power at the Open Chapel and learn about the rich ancient Mayan civilization that was inhabited all the way through to 1500 A.D. when the Spaniards arrived.

Practical Info

Dzibilchaltun is only nine miles from Merida. If you’d rather drive, take the Merida/Progreso Highway north for seven miles, watching the signs as you go. You will end up taking two right turns as you make your way to the ruins.

5 Days of Culture and Biodiversity in Yucatán in a 3 Star Hotel

The haciendas of Mexico were part of an economic system that began with the Spanish in the sixteenth century, similar to the feudal system of Europe. They were efficient farms and manufacturing centers that produced meat and other products for export. Over time, the haciendas became symbols of economic health and culture, adorned with architecture, furniture and art from all over the world. Like the southern plantations of the United States, the haciendas reinforced the caste system, based on race, with the hacendados as masters and the Maya or indigenous as laborers. Most of the Yucatecan haciendas in the 19th century produced henequen rope, a plant variety of the agave cactus, which was exported by the growing transport industry.
