Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, Temozon
(4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This place was an amazing sight to see (Even though we got caught in a small tropical storm). The actual site is not that large and can be covered fairly quickly but be sure to scale some of the build...  more »
  • The archaeological site of Ek Balam is not as big as Chichén Itzá and is less well known that makes it less crowded, so you could enjoy more calmly you can climb the temples and climb to the top of the Acropolis an unforgettable experience. A must-see place for lovers of the Mayan culture and history
