Enjoy the perks of a private Cancun tour and explore the Mayan ruins of Ek Balam at your own rhythm. Travel to the adventure in an A/C vehicle exclusive for you and your friends and family. Get there before the large crowds and walk freely through the buildings of this ancient city.
Start the dream by going through the arch of the entrance and imagine all the people who lived in Ek Balam, their clothes, tufts of bright color feathers decorated with stones, their songs and dances.
Look at the ball game structure that, although small, is very beautiful. Get ready. The best is yet to come! The great Acropolis is in front of you. Climb the stairs of this magnificent structure and admire its gorgeous views!
The inhabitants of this Mayan city were great artists, and now you get to stand in front of their masterwork. Marvel at the magnificent façade, perfectly preserved despite the time; its glyphs; sculptures; all of them are wonderful! It is impossible not to be moved by such perfection.
Ek Balam, translated as black jaguar or star jaguar, is the best preserved Mayan construction in the Riviera Maya area, and yet it is not as visited as Chichen Itza or Tulum. This gives you the opportunity to enjoy all of its beauty, climb on its buildings and take fantastic pictures from the top of the Acropolis. While you are at the top, open your eyes. Take a breath of fresh air and listen to the sounds of the jungle. Open your arms and receive all the energy of this magical place. From above, you can also appreciate some structures still covered by trees and plants, which look like mountains. Hopefully, you will be able to explore them on your next trip to Cancun and Riviera Maya.
Visit this beautiful place early in the morning to enjoy it better, since later the sun is very strong. Also, crowds start to arrive at the site and climbing the pyramids might get complicated. Choose an early pickup time and enjoy a smooth ride on an exclusive vehicle directly to the ruins.
Remember to use biodegradable sunblock and insect repellent. Also, wear a hat or cap to protect your skin and comfortable shoes to climb the buildings. There are loose stones on the floor so watch your step and try not to trip.
