EK BALAM MAYAN RUINS TOURS

Ek Balam Tour

PRIVATE EK BALAM AND CHICHEN ITZA

FROM CANCUN - SEE FROM PLAYA DEL CARMEN AND RIVIERA MAYA
FROM ADULTS: $89.00 KIDS $37.00

Now you can tour two fabulous Mayan Ruins in one trip!  See the majesty of Chichen Itza and the newly uncovered Ek Balam as well as the Ik-Kil Cenote.  This is a private tour - just you and your group with a private driver.

Ek Balam, which means "black jaguar" in Mayan, may well have achieved pivotal status in the public affairs of eastern Yucatan and judging from its monumental architecture it was quite probably an influential city. Visually most impressive is its splendid central plaza bordered by three massive ceremonial structures.

Ek Balam

Ek Balam Mayan Ruins

 

The complex also features a number of smaller temples, altars, and living quarters. The chief pyramid, known as the tower, is comparable in size (100 feet high, 517 feet long, and 200 feet wide) with northeastern Yucatan's most remarkable Mayan buildings.

The Private Express w/Lunch & Ik Kil & Ek Balam tour generally departs Cancun at 8 am . We go directly to Chichen Itza then to Ik Kil (an ecological park) for a swim (fantastic "open to the sky, blue cenote" swim hole) and a buffet lunch. After lunch, we'll visit Ek Balam, which has only been open to the public for two years.

SUGGESTED ITINERARY:


We suggest a 7am departure (no later than 8am ) to arrive at C-Itza at 9:30 before the crowds and heat. Stay there for 2.5 hrs then go to Ik Kil which is minutes away. Jump into the cenote, enjoy the gardens and after sit down and enjoy the buffet. Depart for Ek Balam around 1:30pm and arrive at 2:45pm . Guided tour takes about 1 hr including climbing the ruins. Take a few photos and depart around 4:15pm and arrive into Cancun around 6:00pm. You can easily do this tour faster and return around 5pm if you like.
