Uncover the Ancient City of Ek' Balam

• Cap off an adventurous day with a 17m jump into the beautiful cenote Xcanché. Or just chill in the waters whilst your Chief Expedition Officer shows you how it’s done. 

• Enjoy traditional Yucateca food whilst overlooking a picturesque cenote in the colonial town of Valladolid.

Your Expedition

Off the beaten track, in comparison to Chichén Itzá, Ek‘ Balam offers stunning exploration in the middle of the Yucatan jungle. Climb one of the larger temples (31 meters or 100ft), where you can gaze down at the smaller ancient buildings scattered through the jungle. It’s easy to sense how the Mayans once lived here since much of the site is still to be excavated.

Continue your private adventure by venturing deeper into the jungle where you will find the beautiful Xcanché cenote. Here, it’s possible to jump in from 17 meters (55ft) above the water if you are brave enough. Ask your CEO to show you how it’s done.

All this climbing and jumping will surely have built up an appetite. The bus will take you to the nearby town of Valladolid where you can enjoy a traditional Yucateca lunch whilst overlooking a beautiful cenote in the middle of the city.
