Embark on an exclusive journey through the jungle and learn more about Yucatan's history on this amazing private tour!

This Ek Balam tour departs from Cancun and is the perfect option for families looking for a fun and educative day-long experience outside the resort.

The tour starts in Cancun or other parts of the Riviera Maya where you are staying. You'll be picked up from your accomodations in a large van with AC and driven straight to Rio Lagartos.

Located in an enormous lagoon between Merida and Cancun, Rio Lagartos is home to over 300 species of birds, reptiles, and fish. Here, you'll take a relaxing boat ride through the lagoon, navigating through mangroves on your way to see America's largest flamingo colony.

You'll also get the chance to take an exfoliating mud bath and wash off at a fresh water pool before enjoying a delicious lunch at a local restaurant.

Once you're done, it's time to hop back into the van and head over to Ek Balam. Located in the heart of the Yucatan jungle, Ek Balam is an enormous archeological complex with incredibly preserved murals and artwork.

Though less popular than Chichen Itza, Ek Balam is larger and even more fun to explore, as the lack of crowds gives you more space to explore to your heart's content.

Our bilingual guides will show you around the archeological site for two hours, sharing the story of the region and what makes the ruins so special. As your journey through the jungle comes to a stop, you'll be able to swim around a majestic freshwater cenote before heading back to Cancun.

This exclusive private tour is a can't-miss, all-day adventure. There are few Ek Balam tours from Cancun, and even fewer private ones, so if you're looking for a safe and fun experience for the entire family, this is it!
