Description

Explore the mysterious world of the Mayans both above and below the ground with our visit to Ek Balam archaeological site and a large underground lagoon.

Itinerary

The ruins site at Ek Balam, meaning Bright Star Jaguar, boasts some of the best preserved sculptures from the Mayan era.

The site is lesser known which makes for less crowds and a better personalized, hands-on experience for you. Climb the main structure which houses an amazing tomb, thought to be one of Ek Balam's rulers. 

The entrance to the tomb is beautifully decorated and features a jaguar’s mouth entrance, complete with teeth! At the summit, on a clear day,  you could see the tops of neighboring sites like Chichen Itzá and Coba.

Take time to admire the wall paintings and carvings and enjoy soaking up the atmosphere at this impressive site. You will also visit the Maya Cenote Park where you will see a magical underground lagoon 80 meters in diameter with stunning natural formations.
