Enjoy a one day tour to the ruins of Ek Balam and the colonial city of Valladolid.
Ek Balam is a lesser known but very important archeological site in the Yucatan Peninsula. During this incredible day your private guide will take you to explore this ancient city where you will see such interesting attractions as the main entrance in the shape of a monster’s mouth, symbolizing the entrance to another world as well as two enormous palaces and the main pyramid which offer unforgettable views of the jungle. You will also visit the main ceremonial square, the oval palace, and one of the ancient world’s largest courts for the sacred life and death ball game. This attraction is incredibly mysterious and less trafficked than the major archeological sites. The next stop is to the colonial and quaint city of Valladolid. The city is famous for its architecture as well as its Yucatecan cuisine including the famous “longaniza and cochinita pibil”. Your guide will take you to see the San Bernardino’s convent, as well tour the authentic municipal square, and San Roque museum. Enjoy a walk in the central park with an ice cream and try the magnificent variety of regional food that Valladolid has to offer.
This is a fun day that combines learning about the ancient Maya and seeing an authentic colonial town.
