Ek Balam

Ek stands for black or star and balam stands for jaguar.

The ancient Mayan city of Ek’Balam was once a thriving metropolis of the Mayan civilization. Tours in Ek Balam, will show you the one-of-a-kind high relief sculptures that have caught the attention of archaeologists and visitors alike. These sculptures serve as the foundation for the newly restored Jaguar Mouth sculpture located at the front of the main temple.

This city has 45 structures and is surrounded by two large stone walls. They had defensive purposes and also served to control access to the site. As you explore the area, be sure to visit the ball game (Pok Ta Pok) and the false arch, both of which are iconic examples of the remarkable architecture of the Mayan culture.

Inside the acropolis there is a sculpture-pyramid known as Sak Xok Naah (white house of reading) which served as a tomb for Ukit Kan Le't Tok, who was buried with a rich offering of more than 7,000 pieces such as ceramic vessels, shell objects, conch and tumbaga (a blend of thin gold and copper), showing the architectural and decorative wealth of that time.

Temozon, a Mayan cenote

After exploring Ek’Balam, our tours to Ek Balam take you to a cenote, which are natural sinkholes that are filled with crystal-clear water. Temozon has 60 m diameter and almost a perfect circular shape. In this cenote you can swim, dive, and try your hand at Trepachanga (ropes), Tarzan vine and rappel down 26 m. The crystal clear waters and peaceful surroundings make it the perfect spot to relax or rejoice.

Other activities

Part of these tours in Ek Balam include the visit to a Mayan hub were you will learn about the architecture of Yucatan and even about how Mayans used plants for medical purposes.

Tours to Ek Balam would not be complete without a visit to local market. There you can find quality local handcrafts, including traditional textiles, ceramics, and other artisanal goods. It's a great place to pick up souvenirs and support local businesses.

As we continue our tours in Ek Balam, you'll experience an authentic Blessing Mayan ceremony performed by a shaman. This unique and spiritual experience will give you an insight into the traditional culture of the Maya people, how were shaped their beliefs and how they are preserved.

We also visit an organic garden, where you'll discover the secrets of sustainable agriculture and learn about the variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown in the region.
