Ek Balam is often overlooked in favor of Chichen itza. While Ek balam may be smaller, it has so much to offer!

You can still climb and explore most of Ek Balam

Since it is less popular, this also means hardly any crowds to fight. 

Locals have created a small village near the ruins for selling crafts. 

Most of Ek Balam still isn't uncovered, meaning there is still so much left to discover in this area. 

It is safe and a wonderful place to bring your family

There is also a beautiful cenote in the same area. It is perfect for cooling off.
