Ek Balam + Cenote Maya from Cancun

Did you know you can visit the relatively undiscovered mayan ruins of Ek Balam and try extreme activities such as rappel and zip lines inside one of the biggest cenotes in the Yucatan in the same day? First a visit to the Ek Balam archaeological site with a certified tour guide, who will explain the whereabouts of this somehow forgotten mayan city, which excavations started as late as 1998 and is still a good 85% unexplored and undiscovered. Climb up the Acrópolis and be wowed by the glyphs, paintings and the tomb of the ruler Ukit Kan Le'k Tok' with its impressive monster-like mouth.

Then you will be whisked away to the huge Cenote Maya, a cylindrical and deep cenote sinkhole of stunning dimensions, having the larger dome in all the Yucatan Peninsula. After taking part in a mayan ceremony, you can rappel 85 feet down to the refreshing and crystal clear water of the cenote, jump from wooden platforms, swim and even zip line to the water, all while being inside the cenote! Then go up and try the delicious “mayaritas” which are margaritas prepared with fruits from the organic garden located around the cenote and have a delicious mayan buffet lunch, prepared with ingredients from the same garden, is your mouth watering yet?
