Travel with us to one of the best-kept secrets of the Mayan world. Hidden in the jungle of the Yucatan peninsula, Ek Balam is considered one of the most beautiful, discovered Mayan cities and definitely one of the best preserved.

On this adventure, our expert guide will explain all about the Mayan culture, the various majestic structures and impressive glyph that decorate the ancient walls of this once influential metropolis.

A highlight of the visit is climbing the Acropolis from where on a clear day you can see as far as the pyramids of Cobá and Chichén Itzá.

You’ll visit the Mayapan distillery and the colonial city of Valladolid, a charming place where art and architecture are recognized for its beautiful buildings in pastel colors and old historical churches.

The last stop is a lovely open-air cenote where you can refresh yourself in its crystalline waters before enjoying a delicious regional meal.
