Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, Ek Balam Village
(4.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Step into the ancient past at Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, a well-preserved Mayan site at its pinnacle from 770 CE to 840 CE. The site included one of the largest structures excavated in the region; it includes defensive walls and an arched entrance. Take a guided tour to learn the history of this sacred place. Be sure to take the opportunity to climb to the top of the main temple--something not permitted at larger Mayan sites--and see views of the ancient city and jungle beyond. There's some shade on site, but bring along plenty of sunblock (and your camera). Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Ek Balam Mayan Ruins by using our Ek Balam Village family vacation planner.
