Explore one of the Yucatan's more newly discovered Maya sites—Ek Balam—on a cultural tour from Playa del Carmen. Embark on a full-day visit to these archaeological ruins as well as Cenote Maya Park, an adventure park with a superb natural setting, and get the most out of the Yucatan's vast offerings. Climb to the top of Ek Balam's Acropolis pyramid, discover hidden temples cloaked in dense jungle canopy and wander among ancient statues; then spend the rest of the day swimming in a natural sinkhole, cave rappelling and rainforest ziplining.

Why Travelers Choose This Tour
