Ek Balam Cenote, Valladolid

(4.7/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Valladolid attractions like Ek Balam Cenote can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
