Guidance of professional guide

If you do not have a professional guide with you, it is impossible to explore Ek Balam. Our guides are local and knowledgeable about Mayan culture, so they can explain to you the importance of the archaeological sites you visit. Their explanation will take you back to the classic historical period of the Mayans.

Explore nature and history in one tour

Our Ek Balam private tour lets you explore nature and history in one trip. Our tour will also take you to the Rio Lagartos Biosphere and the Pink Lakes. At Rio Lagartos Biosphere, we will arrange a boat and make it possible to watch various species of birds like herons, fishing eagles, and the famous flamingos. Not only that, but you may also have close encounters with some inhabitants of the mangrove, such as crocodiles or raccoons.

Our tour does not end here. We will take you to the Pink Lakes. The lake’s color is due to the abundance of seaweed, plankton, and shrimps. Our guide will explain how the Mayans used the lake. We will also make it possible to have a Mayan mud bath and wash at a private beach.

Ideal tour for food lovers

We think exploring a place or civilization is incomplete without tasting its cuisines. Keeping this in mind, we arrange to enjoy a great seafood meal at the Rio Lagartos restaurant. You also do not have to bother about snacks and water when you are with us.
