Ek Balam Tour



ADULTS: FROM $83.00  KIDS: $25.00 (See Below for Complete Pricing)

This exclusive PRIVATE tour takes you to the mystical Mayan ruins site of Ek Balam.  This very well preserved ruins is much less visited and much less crowded than nearby Chichen Itza, but it is a very interesting site, and you can climb the largest temple, the Acropolis.

When we arrive at Ek Balam, you can hire a guide at the ruins for about $45.00.  This is optional, but we recommend it for the best experience.  Your driver will help you.  You can climb the ruins to achieve fantastic views all the way to Coba and explore at your own pace.

After the ruins, we'll ride bikes to beautiful Xcanche cenote, where you can rappel inside, then ride a zip line or a rope swing into its cool, fresh waters.  You can do this as many times as you like!  When you're ready, we'll head for the Mayan town of Valladolid.

In Valladolid, you can visit the impressive old cathedral, explore on your own, and take photographs.  All of these activities are on your own schedule - you have total flexibility all day long.  Your private driver is with you all day to take you where you like, when you like!
