What to expect

This private tour conveniently combines some of the most famous Mayan archaeological sites into one private guided experience. First, visit Ek Balam, an ancient Mayan city whose name means “The city of the black jaguar” in the Mayan language. Only open to visitors since 2001, a highlight of this site is the Jaguar Altar which the Mayans believed was the entrance to the kingdom of the dead. The mystery of this altar remains and some scientists and historians still argue about its true origin and purpose.

After a swim in the crystal clear Ik Kil cenote, continue by private air-conditioned transport to Chichen Itza. This ancient Mayan city is home to architectural wonders including the Kukulkan Pyramid. Your private historian guide is there to help you understand the history, mysteries and legends of these sites and their original Mayan inhabitants. A traditional Mexican lunch rounds out the experience.
