Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, Temozon

4.8
#11 of 199 in Things to do in Yucatan
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.

    An option for those who want to escape from the too familiar or crowded areas. It is the only reason to arrive early to avoid the hours more hot day. Buildings with different degrees of conservation and a surprisingly intact structure because it was covered from its origin. Parking, service area.

    An archaeological site maintained very well, not too time consuming so it tasted good. We visited in the morning so we didn't find too many people either. Very interesting the Acropolis. After visiting the site, go and refresh at the cenote is even more enjoyable. It is a little far, I recommend renting bikes. Do not be fooled with surcharges varying type rope or zipline, not worth it in this case.

    a relatively small place but its huge pyramid will leave satisfied, since it has the ornaments more beautiful in its structure, according to me, walk with the family through the jungle where you'll see flora and fauna lpcal, besides that near the ruins there are several beautiful cenotes and TEMOZON, place where you can not miss the smoked meat, which has a unique style in mexico , I'm going every I can from cozumel
