Ek Balam

These climbable ruins are nestled in the jungles of Yucatan state, about two hours west of Cancun. The site has several large structures including a tall main pyramid, along with beautifully preserved carvings. Ek Balam is a great way to experience ancient Mayan culture without the crowds.
