Our Progreso Private Xcambo Mayan Ruins Excursion is the perfect half day Mayan Ruins Excursion from Progreso cruise port to explore some of the lesser known archaeological highlights of the Yucatan Peninsula, a real treat for history and culture lovers! 

Xcambó is located on the Yucatan coast, in the town of Dzemul and it is indeed a through provoking site. The Xcambo Mayan Ruins were only excavated within the last 10 years and excavation work by the Mexican government institution INAH is still ongoing. The name Xcambo means either “Lugar de la donacella” (Place of virginity/maidenhood) or “Lugar de la luna menguante” (Place of the decreasing or ebbing moon). 

This was an important salt and saltfish trading post during Xcambo’s longest period of occupation, from 300 – 600 AD. It is thought 6,000 people lived in the surrounding areas. In 2001, 600 skeletal remains were found at the site. According to archaeologists, the skeletons revealed a community relatively free of disease. Also found at Xcambo were several artifacts from Guatemala and Belize, leading experts to believe this was an important trading area. 

On the site you can admire the Temple of the Cross, a large stepped base with a cross on top, and the Temple of Sacrifice and the Lady Chapel. Enjoy a fully narrated tour of the Xcambo Mayan Ruins as part of your Progreso Private Xcambo Mayan Ruins Excursion is the perfect half day Mayan Ruins Excursion.

Enjoyed Xcambo
    4 / 5 stars
Good to see a lesser known ruins on this vacation. The history was very well presented by our guide and everyone in my group had a pleasant time. We enjoyed seeing the iguanas on the grounds too. Too bad our camera decided to stop working!
