Only 10 minutes from Merida, on the road from the port of Progresso is Dzibilchaltún: an archaeological site dispersed in a 15 km2 area in the middle is the Temple of the Seven Dolls, famous for the contemplation of the phenomena of the Sun and the Moon. The Sun is contemplated on 20 and 21 March, and on 20 and 21 September during the equinoxes of spring and autumn. The moon is seen between March 22 and April 20. Another great attraction of this site is the cenote Xlacah, meaning "old town" in the Mayan language. It has one of the largest lakes deep underground in the Yucatan, with more than 40 meters deep. The cenotes, or sinkholes, are one of the natural treasures of the Yucatan Peninsula. The porous limestone peninsula does not allow the rivers and lakes of surface form; groundwater or stagnant for the formation of these magnificent caves and lakes. Once the only source of fresh water in the region, cenotes were sacred to the Mayans and considered the entrance to the underworld. With more than 5,000 of them throughout the Yucatan, they are captivating and mystifying all who visit. Many cenotes are easily accessible from Merida where you can swim and be enchanted by their beauty perfect. Visit these magical places can be easily planned excursions and visits combined with other activities for a more complete experience.
