Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, Temozon

4.8
Transport yourself back in time as you admire the ancient and sophisticated Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, built well over 2000 years ago. A lesser-known and smaller ruin than others in the area, but no less impressive, the complex rarely gets busy, leaving you to explore on your own terms, and even climb the ruins themselves. Consider taking a guide with you to get the most out of the complex, and get a better impression of what life here was like all those years ago. Don’t forget your camera, bug spray, sunscreen, and plenty of water to keep you hydrated while you wander around the ruins.

  • From my point of view these ruins are much better than the Chichen and not so many people there which allows you to do everything with much more ease. Admission is $202 mxn and carry cash because they do not accept the card. The way to arrive is in good condition and is not far from Valladolid (27km).

  • Archaeology is fascinating but here is spectacular, the tomb of the Governor is the. Most impressive and well preserved of the puuc route, the view at the top of the pyramid is spectacular, all the buildings are very beautiful and after doing the tour of the ruins, rent a bicycle to get on a path of 5 km to a cenote, very beautiful in which re ntan lifejackets to hang out very well, has a canopy and a rope so you can balance and fall into the cenote.

  • It was fascinating to learn about this place. In the middle of a beautiful nature, we find an enormous Palace, much more than Chichen Itza. Of truth that the Maya were geniuses!
