Ek Balam or ‘Black Jaguar’ is one of the most important archaeological sites of Yucatan.
The main palace is higher than the Kukulcán temple in Chichén Itzá and you still can climb the structures.
Recently they found an 80% intact stucco façade of the mausoleum of Ukit Kan Le’k Tok’, the most important Maya ruler of Ek Balam, with more than 7000 pieces of offerings, dating back to the 8th century.
A professional certified guide will tell you about its history.
A deserved refreshing dip in a remote open cenote will be more than satisfying, especially on a hot day. If you want, you can jump in it or just take a moment to relax.
When you say Mexico, you say Tequila. In this distillery they explain you from A to Z how tequila is made in an artisan way.
Enjoy a few shots before you go for lunch.
This is an optional stop.
