Our “Ek Balam and Rio Lagartos in english” tour is an absolute must, as it combines the most beautiful sights of the state of Yucatan.

1st stop Ek Balam – the ruins of the Maya in the jungle

The adventure begins at about 6:30 in the morning. You will be picked up by our air-conditioned minibus directly at your hotel. After about 2 hours of driving we reach the Mayan ruins of Ek Balam. You will be amazed – they are excellently preserved and impressively show the former power of the Maya. Our english speaking guide will bring you closer to the impressive history of this culture and show you the most worth seeing places of this site.

Ek Balam is a former Mayan center located in the jungle, about 30 km north of Valladolid and 170 km from the coastal city of Cancun, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The name Ek Balam, which comes from the Mayan language, translates as “Black Jaguar”. However, depending on how this name is pronounced, “Ek” can also be translated as “star”. Due to recent excavations, where star-like paintings were actually discovered in the first building, Ek Balam is also called “Star Jaguar”.

2nd stop Rio Lagartos – a wonder of nature

After a two-hour stay in Ek Balam, we continue for about an hour to Rio Lagartos. Once there, an unforgettable boat tour awaits you!

The Rio Lagartos Biosphere Reserve is located in the northeast of the state of Yucatan, bordering the Gulf of Mexico to the north and the state of Quintana Roo to the east. It consists of several ecosystems, such as dunes and mangrove forests on the coast and the adjoining tropical rainforest. Over 500 different plant species and a high animal diversity of 550 different species have been recorded. The reserve is best known for its pink flamingos, which come there to build their nests and give birth to their young.
