An incredible new adventure tour in the tradition of sustainable tourism! This tour will take you to the seldom visited but well-preserved Ek Balam Mayan Ruins site, where your expert guide will share with you the legends and history of the Mayan Empire.

The adventure continues with an exciting rappelling adventure, into an underground cenote (there are stairs for the less adventurous). You'll have an opportunity to cool off in the underground river, while admiring the amazing limestone formations, stalactites and stalagmites. Swing from Tarzan's vine or ride a zip line into the cool, clear waters.

The tour will conclude with a visit to a local restaurant, where you'll enjoy Mayan delicacies for lunch. Here we can also watch local Mayans work their art, explore the gardens or relax in hammocks.
