Overview

This 13-hour day trip takes you from your hotel in Cancun inland to the recently excavated ruins of Ek Balam, a Mayan city full of carvings, tombs, wall paintings, and mysteries. Visit a tequila factory for a tasting, enjoy lunch, then head to Rio Lagartos, the Yucatan's famous pink lake—a mineral-rich lagoon where you can take a healing mud bath before cleansing off in the Gulf of Mexico. This private tour by air-conditioned minivan includes entrance fees, bottled water, hotel pickup and drop-off, and a private historian guide.

What To Expect

Ek Balam
The ancient city of Ek Balam, named after its last governor, Black Jaguar, is one of the last discovered Mayan cities and opened to the public only recently. You will see the places where sacrifices were performed, climb the Acropolis - the governor’s palace, considered the biggest Mayan monument so far, and try to resolve the altar’s mystery, which guards the entrance to the kingdom of dead.

The biosphere reserve Ria Lagartos, where we will wade through the mangroves on small boats, observing flocks of flamingos, Cayman crocodiles and other inhabitants of the reserve searching of the symbol of good luck – the "sea cockroach".

Las Coloradas
Las Coloradas. It’s a valley of pink lakes. Due to the high content of minerals and salts, the water gains a special pink color and its consistency is like one of the Dead Sea.
