Come and visit the ancient Mayan ruins site of Ek Balam.  Enjoy an incredible new adventure tour in the tradition of sustainable tourism!  Besides the guided visit to the well-preserved Ek Balam site of the Mayan Empire, you will enjoy a some free time to explore on your own to take pictures, buy souvenirs and more!

Then it's time to enjoy a great outdoor adventure.  Get geared up and climb to the platform to do some rappelling into an underground cenote, you can also use the stairs if you desire.  This is great to cool off in the underground river.

Some of the other activities you can dare to try are: zip lines, or swing from Tarzan's vine or ride into the cool, clear waters.  Once your refreshing adventure is over, we'll visit a local restaurant, where a delicious lunch is waiting for you.  Afterwards you can watch local artisans work their art or just relax.
