It took us about an hour to drive to Xcambo from Dzibilchaltun. The coastal road is nice and easy to ride. The site is small, just a couple of small pyramids. Climbing is allowed. There are remnants of a stucco frieze at one of them...More

My family and i visited Xcambo on 03/08/18. We arrived and discovered that there is not a lot of people on this excursion. It isn't one of the big popular ruins, so you feel very peaceful and not rushed. The ruins are in good condition...More

We loved this place because you can climb the pyramids, you cant do it in Chichen. Its a lot smaller (and cheaper) but it was totally worth the time.

We traveled here on a afternoon visit through the area. The signage is very good to find Xcambo. Once you are on the property, go past the first parking lot, down the lane way till you come to a small visitor booth. There is a...More

Most visitors stop after visiting the larger, more widely publicized ruins like Chichenitza, Tulum, or Uxmal. We've been visiting the Yucatan peninsula for several years and wanted to visit some of the lesser known Mayan ruin sites. It doesn't get much more authentic than Xcambo!...More

Enjoyed an afternoon exploring Mayan site. We took a short bus ride from Progreso on a "flamngo tour". We saw flamingos and a salt Marsh before ending up in the Xcambo ruins. Interesting Mayan site with several pyramids and other structures. We had great photo...More
