Note: The price per adult drops when there are more adults in your group. That is because we have fixed costs to pay tolls, driver, etc. Kid prices remain the same, regardless of number of adults. Kids under the age or height listed above are free. 10 people max per vehicle regardless of ages. If you are a total of 11 people (including kids) or more, email us for a quote as you will need 2 or more vans.

Climb the ruins of Ek Balam and uncover distinct carvings left by the Mayans. Ride a bike to the beautiful open cenote Xcanche, rappel down the walls, swing on a rope or zip line over the clear blue waters below. Unlimited activites at the cenote! When you are done there we head to Valladolid to see the cathedral.

Includes

  • Round trip A/C transportation exclusively for your group
  • English speaking driver, entrance fee to Ek Balam Ruins and toll road fees
  • Bike to the cenote Xcanche for rappelling, zip line across the cenote and swimming in the clear water.
  • DOES NOT include guide in Ek Balam or a tip to the driver if warranted
  • Lunch not included, you can choose to eat at the cenote or at Valladolid

*** Note that the certified guides inside the ruins are not included on this tour, and they are not part of the service that we provide. Therefore, we are not responsible and do not control the prices or exchange rate of the guide that you hire. Remember to agree on the price before hiring a guide.

 

Bring:

  • Swimsuit & towel
  • Sunblock (biodegradable), hat, sunglasses
  • Lunch / Spending money
  • Walking shoes & Camera

TRANSPORTATION: If staying in the Riviera Maya we need to add on a service fee for pickup and drop off as follows:

  • Cancun & Bahia Petempich No extra surcharge $0
  • Puerto Morelos $30 per van
  • Playa Paraiso $40 per van
  • Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal or Tulum hotels please book the Chichen Itza, Ik Kil and Coba tour instead. It is less driving and Coba is a comparable site of ruins to Ek Balam.

We do not recommend it, but we CAN do this tour from the Riviera Maya for a $100 surcharge per van.

You will see the optional add on in your Shopping Cart on the next page. This fee is per VEHICLE, not per person.

Itinerary:

It is a 2 ½ hour ride there. I suggest a 7AM - 10AM departure (we suggest leave early at 7AM or 8AM).

You and your group go directly from your hotel to the Mayan ruins... private tours are for your group only and therefore you plan the day. We do not offer this tour as a public bus tour.Official guides inside the ruins are not included and can be purchased at the entrance.

You can only use biodegradable products on the reef and in cenotes. Biodegradable AfterSun, Sun Block and Insect Repellent are available for purchase here.

Cancellation/Reservation Policy

  • All prices are in US Dollars
  • Groups of 6 or more subject to larger deposits
  • You do not need an EP card to get the BEST prices in Cancun.
  • Some tours/transfers require deposit or payment in full at time of booking.
  • If the tour departs as scheduled it is a completed tour. If you are not on the tour on time you will be considered a no-show and therefore we will be charged. In that case, you will forfeit any deposit made.
  • Do not assume a tour is cancelled by rain. Only the tour operator determines if a tour is cancelled due to weather. Not even I can make that call.
  • This tour must be cancelled by 2:00 PM on the day BEFORE the tour in order to receive a full refund of any deposit you may have made.
  • Cancellations can be made by e-mail 48 hrs before your tour departs. Less than 48 hrs you are required to call our office.
  • You personally must speak with our staff. Do not have the hotel travel agent or concierge call. We all speak English.
  • We will provide you with a cancellation number. Please write it down and guard it until you have received your refund.
  • In most cases a refund will be issued within 48 hrs.
  • After 2:00 PM on the day before your tour we still may be able to cancel/refund you, but you are taking a risk. If the tour is full and the operator cannot fill your space, you will lose your deposit. So, call us whenever you can.
  • Our phone number in Cancun is 914-0290. It is also on the back of your EP Card and all tour e-vouchers you received. If you have any trouble dialing this number, ask the concierge or front desk staff to assist you. We are here from 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM daily and have an answering machine for the off hours.
  • If your tour is cancelled by the tour operator for any reason including weather, you will receive a full refund or be able to reschedule with no penalty.
  • You can change the date of any tour without penalty IF you call before 2:00 PM on the day before the tour.
  • IMPORTANT: We have the right to cancel or exchange any portion of this tour due to weather, availability, road construction or any other reason without notice. We always try to provide the exact service above however, there are times it is out of our control. We will offer other "parks/activities" near the area if something is closed. If you decide not take any other option or if none is available we will charge you the web site price for the services that you were able to do. Example; if you have Tulum and a snorkeling trip planned, you cannot snorkel; we will charge you as if you only went to Tulum. The most expensive part of this trip is the van, gas and driver for the day.
  • We have the most flexible cancellation policy in Cancun and we will only keep your deposit IF we are charged by the tour operator.
