  • See a Small Town Bull Fight

    Having a rental car is great. We were coming back from the Ek Balam Mayan ruins on the way to Valladolid to find a hotel. Along the way we saw all this commotion in a field by a small town.

  • Xkeken De Dzitnup

    Xkeken De Dznitnup is a cenote (underground, fersh water filled sinkhole).

    Hire a boat from the bridge where launches are docked about one km from the town. It will take you about 1.5 hours to tour the flamingo-inhabited areas.


    Celestun is famous for its bird sanctuary and makes a good bird day trip from Merida. Most birdwatchers come here to see the flamingoes.
