Christmas Trip to Ekbalam

Today we did the Tour to Ekbalam with #Eli - it was a Great and also fun experience.

The Trip to the cenote was cool, Eli gave us many explanations and the roping down the water was Great.

After that we Went to Ekbalam, which is really a wonderful archaological site- a Must See in Yucatan peninsula

All in all we would highly recommend this Tour ♥️
Thanks to Eli!!

The tour was amazing a full day of new experiences and first times. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English and Spanish. The water was cold and refreshing and the lunch was over the top. We would recommend this tour and ask for Josue Aka Josh
Wonderful sites!

Wonderful day trip. We passed by some typical Maya Villages to get to the Cenote. Before getting in the Maya priest permed a Maya blessing ceremony. The lunch was good and from there we drove to Ek Balam. You can actually climb the steps of the pyramids. The tour guide- Luis and driver- Ricardo were punctual, professional and friendly. Overall a great tour.
Very interesting good tour

Wonderful tour of Ek Balam Mayan temple

We wanted to tour one of the temples while in Playa del Carmen. We had already seen Chichenitiza and Tulum. We lucked into this tour with Alltournative when the travel agent at our resort recommended it. And it was far superior to our previous touring experiences. The group was small and our guide Guillermo (Moe) was very knowledgeable, helpful and respectful of the Mayan people. The temple is wonderful. The stellas are beautifully restored and our Ek Balam guide pointed out some very interesting points. We were there in January so even though my husband enjoyed rappelling into the cenote it was a little too chilly to swim. The cenote is beautiful though. The lunch was very good, Moe handled conducting the tour in both English and Spanish very well. Only complaint- the tour van is a bit short on space with little leg room. However this was one of the highlights of our trip!
