Ek Balam Self-Guided Walking Tour

Ek Balam: Ancient Maya’s Best-Kept Secret and often overshadowed little brother to uber-crowded Chichen Itza, is a very special place. There are Mayan Ruins scattered across the Yucatan Peninsula, but few rivals the intimate experience available here. Between getting there, exploring along the way, and eventually scaling the massive temple, you are guaranteed an amazing day at one of Cancun's favorite ruin sites yet.
