Visited Ek’balam ruins to continue the adventure. It was very expensive admission fee. While being there we were able to climb up the ruin which was amazing. Most days you are t able to go up the steps of the ruins. The steps were inclined...More
This is a beautifully preserved site; peaceful and surrounded by lush vegetation. The ruins are located close together and offer amazing views of the jungle from the top of the pyramids (there are no hills in Mexico, the lumps that you see under the trees...More
I took a taxi colectivo from Valladolid which is 50peso. When getting there I was at first kinda surprised that the entrance fee was 413 peso, mainly because I heard that the site is not that big. And it's not. You pay the same amount...More
I was traveling with three twenty-something, very fit women and we had a blast visiting the Ek' Balam ruins. The site is smaller, quieter, and more accessible than the larger and popular Chichen Itza. It's a great way to spend a day especially when combined...More

this is a great place to visit! But if you were on a tight budget or have a larger family you may have to give it a miss. The state of Yucatán has tacked on local fees and a poll tax on foreign visitors that...More
Our family of four adults really loved Ek Balam. We visited after Chichen Itza, it’s really deep in the forest, and away from everything. Here you can climb the ruins, there is a sports field and two different structures, one a temple, one a palace...More
I was very excited to see this place. My fiance and I drove 2 hours from Cancun Mexico to visit . GPS took us through a dirt road which I will add was very scary and sketchy. Ek Balam Pyramids are very beautiful but a...More

We went a few days ago and we paid $150 MXN for a rickshaw ride that included the entrance fee. The ticket booth also offered $120 MXN for individual bike rentals that included the entrance fee to the cenote.
