Ek Balam Ruins and Valladolid w/ cenote

The Ek Balam and Valladolid excursion provides insight into a very different style of Mayan architecture unique to Ek Balam. The construction and decoration of Ek Balam’s buildings was completed with stucco and limestone mortar, not the stone carvings found at Chichen Itza, Coba or the Tulum Ruins. In additon to the highly decorated and detailed structures, Ek Balam has unique features within its city limits. Our next stop is the colonial city of Valladolid, an up and coming artist city that has a long history in the Yucatan. Local family merchants have hand-made crafts and art typical to Mexico and the region.The main square is the location of the oldest church in the area and the Spanish colonial style found throughout the zocalo.

“ I can't say enough about Dan and his staff. If you want an unique tour, don't go with those big tour agencies, as you'll just be a number to them. They give you one to one interaction. You won't be disappointed.”
