When exploring the Mayan city of Ek Balam, don't forget to visit Ek Balam Cenote, a natural limestone sinkhole used by the Maya people for ceremonies. Hike or take a rickshaw ride on the tree-lined path to the cenote, the deep freshwater basin that the Mayas considered sacred. You can go for a relaxing walk along the boardwalk encircling the cenote, or rappel on the rope swings into the water. Cool off with a dip in the basin's clear water and look for the many catfish that inhabit the cenote.
